Spatial prediction of the behavioral states for 11 satellite tagged humpback whales off the West Antarctic Peninsula from Feb-May 2016. The observed locations are first partitioned into traveling and area-restricted search states based on the two-dimensional pattern of horizontal movement. The area-restricted search states are then subdivided into foraging and resting sub-states based on vertical dive depths. We did not subdivide the traveling state based on dive depths, therefore the traveling state appears in both maps
