Table 3 Accuracy in km of state-space model-estimated locations and pre-filtered KS locations (pf_KS), by species and Argos data type. The pf_KS locations had the pre-filter algorithm applied but not the state-space model. Median and 95th percentile statistics were calculated from distances to GPS locations, pooled among individuals within species and Argos data type

From: A continuous-time state-space model for rapid quality control of argos locations from animal-borne tags
