# Reporting

## Introduction

Firetail provides a reporting module, available from `Report > Run Report`

.
It is designed to help you to rapidly accumulate important facts about recent events for one or multiple animals.

Start by selecting individuals from the `Open Files`

panel.

For selected individuals (checked in the `Open Files`

panel), the reporting module computes

- basic statistics
**box plot**: speed distributions- number of GPS locations
- distance traveled
- total hours
- min/max/average/median speed
- min/max/median time delta among GPS locations
**distribution**: sampling distances (GPS locations)**orientation plot**: 360 degree heading distribution

- scatterplots of pairwise event data (sensors)
- track view
- activity plot
- across individuals/tags/deployments:
- matrix of all-pairs, closest encounters

- Magnetic field calibration results
- FireSOM predictions using previously defined models

## Basic Statistics

In the reporting dialog, check the basic statistics checkbox to obtain the following statistics per individual:

statistic | description |
---|---|

number of GPS locations | the number of GPS locations in the given time range |

distance traveled | the cumulative distance traveled for all individuals. Estimation from GPS locations |

total hours | the time span covered in hours |

min/max/average/median speed | median speed across all individuals, estimation from consecutive GPS locations |

min/max/median time delta | minimum/maximum/median offset between consecutive GPS locations |

### Speed Distribution

A box plot of past speed distributions for an individual. (See also: Quick Stats). This gives an estimate of activity in the past month (days, depending on the selected interval).

### Sampling Time Distribution

A plot of the distribution of sampling intervals among GPS locations. A uniform distribution of intervals will be visible as a horizontal line. Shorter sampling intervals will show in the left of the plot, whereas longer intervals will appear in the right (upper) half.

### GPS Heading

This plot is a histogram of the preferred heading in degrees during the monitored time range.

## Scatterplots of Events

This provides an all-against-all view of the all pairs of event data for a tag. It can be useful to detect correlations with battery decay, height or other dependencies.

## Track View

An overview of the track in the analysis interval.

## Activity Plot

An activity plot for the analysis interval.

## Distance Matrix

This matrix provides an overview of the

- median
- average
- minimum/maximum

distance among all pairs of tracks.

*Hover* a cell in the matrix to get detailed information about
the entities compared and their statistics.

## Magnetic field calibration

Apply a magnetic field calibration if MAG data is available and show the goodness of fit.

## FireSOM predictions

Load and apply a previously defined model to each individual in the selected set. Requires acceleration data and an appropriate FireSOM model.
