Abstract
    1. Solar geolocators are relatively cheap and simple tools which are widely used to study the migration of animals,especially birds. The methods to estimate the geographic positions from the light-intensity patterns collectedby these loggers, however, are still under development.2. The accurate reconstruction of the annual schedules and movement patterns of individual animals requiresanalytical methods which provide estimates of daily locations, distances between the locations and the directionsof movement, withmeasures of their uncertainty.3. The new R package FLIGHTRmeets all these requirements. It enables refined and statistically validated estimationsof movement patterns of birds. Here, we present main features of this advanced package.
