Title Waterstriders dataset
Downloaded 21 times
Description Dataset of three age-classes of water striders (n=10) moving on smooth, wave-dominated, and bubble-dominated water surfaces. Columns indicate the individual's label, age, treatment, distance d (cm), maximal height h (cm), stroke angle α (º), stroke duration ts (s), pitch β (º), yaw γ (º), roll ψ (º). average speed um (cm/s), peak speed up (cm/s), average acceleration am (cm/s^2), body mass mb (mg) and body length lb (cm). Variables divided by the body length (lb) represent normalized data.

Title Digitization data
Downloaded 16 times
Description Digitalized data from ten individuals (adults, juveniles and newborns) jumping on smooth, wavy and bubbly water surfaces. Files ( *_xyzpts.csv) have the following 3D digitized points in Cartesian system XYZ in cm. For adults and juveniles: Point 1 (head tip), Point 2 (abdomen tip), point 3 (left rear-leg tip), point 4 (left middle-leg tip), point 5 (left front-leg tip), point 6 (left middle-leg base), point 7 (right middle-leg base), point 8 (right rear-leg tip),point 9 (right middle-leg tip). For new-born striders: Point 1 (head tip), Point 2 (abdomen tip), point 3 (left middle-leg tip), point 4 (right middle-leg tip), point 5 (left rear-leg tip), point 6 (right rear-leg tip), point 7 (left middle-leg base), point 8 (right middle-leg base). Digitalization software is described in: Hedrick, T. L. (2008). Software techniques for two- and three-dimensional kinematic measurements of biological and biomimetic systems. Bioinspir. Biomim. 3, 034001.
