(A) Two-dimensional histograms of group level properties across all data. Lighter areas indicate group configurations that are more likely to occur in the data. (B) Difference between the distributions within a given context (left column: low path density; middle column: medium path density; right column: high path density) and the overall distribution across all data. Redder areas represent group configurations that are over-represented within a given context (relative to the rest of the data), and bluer areas represent under-represented configurations. The path density was defined as the fraction of the area within the convex hull of the group that was on a path. In areas of high path density, the group tends to move faster, and in a more directed fashion. See Figure 4 and Supplementary methods for descriptions of how group-level properties were computed. See also Figure 6 and Appendix 1—figure 21.
