From Data to Information: Associating GPS Positions with Animals
Lotek GPS collars, the first ever made for wildlife tracking, provide an accurate means of monitoring animal movements through a variety of terrains and climates.
Marco Polo's best dog GPS collar is a bridge between smartphone-based pet GPS tracking devices and true, premium, high-quality professional pet GPS systems for dogs or other animals, like the one below.
This is a self-contained device that does not require any external GPS support and will work anywhere, thus being a great companion device whenever you go into the woods or other areas where it's easy to lose your dogs. It also isn't dependent on any subscription services and will save you money in the long-run by a large margin.

GPS Tracker for Animals - Spy World Miami
Rangers in South Africa insert a GPS chip into a rhino's horn. A new report details recent incidents of misuse of animal tracking devices like this.Radio tracking technology can help determine exactly where an animal is at any moment in time and often what that animal is doing! Using the data collected from tracking devices, scientists can determine the day-to-day movements of an animal, the size of an animal's home range, what other animals share an animal's range and the types of habitats an animal uses. By analyzing all this data, scientists can learn new ways to help control animal , determine what impact development might have on an animal population, and determine if there are enough individuals of a particular species in an area to allow for reproduction.
There are three types of radio tracking systems used today. VHF Radio Tracking, Satellite Tracking and Global Positioning System (GPS) Tracking.The Paw Tracker and Tractive our the top 2 GPS Pet Trackers picks for 2016. The seem to have the best customer service, and are USA based companies tend to be more responsive to issues that may arise after purchase. We found that Whistle has some negative reviews after they merged with Tagg. Some Tagg customers, who switched to the Whistle Application, were not able to get proper customer service. I see some posting that they are concerned with the RF or EMF of these devices on the animals health. I am an RF engineer and have been for 25 years. The frequencies used in all of these devices, are what is termed non-ionizing RF. Putting this in everyday terms, the wave length of these frequencies are much too wide to interact with anything at a cellular level. If you pay attention to the articles that make statements to the contrary, you will notice they all seem to be selling or promoting some product to counter act the effects. Essential oils, beads and other such products can’t cure or protect from something that isn’t happening. It is settled science that the frequencies used by cellular, GPS (doesn’t even transmit), Bluetooth and NFC are not in the frequency ranges that are harmful to our cellular structures. They don’t cause cancer or DNA alterations. There is a direct relationship with the wave length of a frequency and its ability to interact with cellular structures. Now one could argue that if what I am saying is true, then you could stick your head in a microwave since they operate in the 2.4Ghz frequency. However, what happens with a microwave is it doesn’t interact with the cellular structures, but rather it interacts with the water in the item being cooked and boils it. This is what cooks the food in a microwave. Microwaves also present between 600-1200 watts focused in close proximity to do this. The output of the very small radios in these devices are very low and they transmit in all directions. No concentration of signal is entering the animal. It is also important to note that all of these devices only turn on to transmit at certain intervals. They do not constantly transmit or their batteries would run down in a very short period. So your animals are completely safe with one of these devices. They are all required to be certified by the FCC to be in compliance with the standards that have been determined through science to be completely safe. I hope you will accept this. As I said, I am an RF engineer educated by MIT, and building RF products for 25 years.
