ThruTracker: high-throughput software for 2-D and 3-D tracking 

ThruTracker is a powerful and free software platform for automated 2-D and 3-D video-based animal tracking. It is actively developed by Dr. Aaron Corcoran (UC Colorado Springs) with support from Dr. Tyson Hedrick (Univ. North Carolina) in collaboration with Bat Conservation International. Funding for earlier development of ThruTracker was provided by the Department of Energy.

A free compiled version of ThruTracker for Windows is available here:
