For a long time, life sciences were restricted to look at animal habitats only post-factum. Pervasive computing puts us in the novel position to gain live views. In this paper we present BurrowView, an application that tracks the movement of rats in their natural habitat and reconstructs the underground tunnel system. To make reliable statements, special consideration has been taken with regard to the information quality. Our system is able to reconstruct paths up to a resolution of 20 cm, the length of a rat without its tail.
