Karawatha acoustic sensor data annotations

Viewed: 1245
This dataset is the tagged csv file resulting from a study investigating the use of acoustic sensors to monitor frog species in the Karawatha Forest Park, Southeast Queensland. Audio data can be retrieved by date and time period and by searching annotation tags which have been applied to the audio recordings (for example it is possible to search for all audio samples tagged with frog). 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.
