Where The Animals Go

James Cheshire, Oliver Uberti

For thousands of years, tracking animals meant following footprints. Now satellites, drones, camera traps, cellphone networks, apps and accelerometers allow us to see the natural world like never before. Geographer James Cheshire and designer Oliver Uberti take you to the forefront of this animal-tracking revolution. Meet the scientists gathering wild data - from seals mapping the sea to baboons making decisions, from birds dodging tornadoes to jaguars taking selfies. Join the journeys of sharks, elephants, bumblebees, snowy owls, and a wolf looking for love. Find an armchair, cancel your plans and go where the animals go.

James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti's complementary skills enable them to produce graphics and book pages that few others can match. As a lecturer at University College London, James applies his cartographic and programming skills to the staggering amount of data that scientists are now collecting. In 2017, he was awarded the Royal Geographical Society's Cuthbert Peek Award in recognition of his work 'advancing geographical knowledge through the use of mappable Big Data'. Oliver has more than a decade of experience visualizing and writing about wildlife research-from 2003 to 2012, he worked in the design department of National Geographic, most recently as Senior Design Editor.
