Title Raw accelerometer data
Downloaded 6 times
Description Raw accelerometer data from the far site. Column headings: Seconds, X-axis (g-force; forward-backward on the bird), Y-axis (g-force; left-right on the bird), Z-axis (g-force, up-down on the bird), light (LUX), temperature (degrees Celsius). Note: there appears to be some problems with the measurements from light and temperature so these were not used in our study.
