Conceptual Figure of Grid-based Search. An information surface is generated as the algorithm searches over a grid of alternative s and k values for each individual movement path. The increments of the grid can be chosen by the user. The peak in the surface indicates that the maximum level of information about the home range is obtained at the associated parameter set. The ridge in surface illustrated here suggests that multiple parameters sets with different s values offer the same information content. In such cases, the parameter set with the smallest s and k values was selected. Here, the white outlines denote the highest information criterion value, and thereby, the optimal parameter set
