Cornubia Wetlands acoustic sensor data annotations

Viewed: 1140
This dataset is the tagged csv file resulting from a study investigating the presence of the Lewin's Rail, a species of bird in the Rallidae family, and to describe biodiversity in the Cornubia Wetlands. Acoustic sensors are being used to record Lewin's Rails' calling patterns and to test for the presence of Rails in new areas. Audio data can be retrieved by date and time period and by searching annotation tags which have been applied to the audio recordings. Researchers can download audio files and csv files containing information about the tags specified in the search. The 'tag' file includes: Tag Name,Start Time,End Time,Max Frequency (hz), Min Frequency (hz),Project Site, Sensor Name, Score and a link to the specific audio sample associated with the individual tag.
