The website focuses on migratory animals in and around Greenland. It was developed in collaboration between Aarhus University, the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources and the Government of Greenland. Visit niki.gl (in Danish and Greenlandic).

ARC-affiliated Senior Researcher Flemming Ravn Merkel says: "It’s absolutely fascinating to see what we can get out of data with the ever-increasing selection of satellite transmitters, data loggers and other electronic transmitters.”
