Documented in plotPath

#' Plot animal movement data
#'
#' This function plots the path of an animal tracked using the \code{trackPath} function.
#' @param path.list a list object created by the \code{trackPath} function
#' @details This function relies on the ggplot package.
#' @return A density plot of time spent in a position overlaid with the tracked animal's path.
#' @import ggplot2
#' @export
