Lineage Between 2011 and 2014, ARGOS satellite tags and GPS tags were deployed on 31 Southern sea lions (adult females and male/female juveniles) at various breeding colonies (Big Shag Island, Kelp Island, Port Harriet, Cape Dolphin) around the Falkland Islands by Al Baylis (Falklands Conservation/Deakin University, Australia) and Ian Staniland (BRITISH ANTARCTIC SURVEY). The raw ARGOS locations (see metadata FK-EPD-112) were provided as mulitple excel files, reformatted, combined and transformed in a shapefile. The attributes contain LC which for ARGOS locations gives the accuracy classification of the raw location; GPS locations are classified as GPS by this attibute.
