Scaling acoustic data analysis through collaboration and automation
Wimmer, Jason, Towsey, Michael W., Planitz, Birgit, Roe, Paul, & Williamson, Ian (2011) Scaling acoustic data analysis through collaboration and automation. In Proceedings of IEEE Sixth International Conference on e-Science, IEEE, Brisbane, Qld.
Monitoring and assessing environmental health is becoming increasingly important as human activity and climate change place greater pressure on global biodiversity. Acoustic sensors provide the ability to collect data passively, objectively and continuously across large areas for extended periods of time. While these factors make acoustic sensors attractive as autonomous data collectors, there are significant issues associated with large-scale data manipulation and analysis. We present our current research into techniques for analysing large volumes of acoustic data effectively and efficiently. We provide an overview of a novel online acoustic environmental workbench and discuss a number of approaches to scaling analysis of acoustic data; collaboration, manual, automatic and human-in-the loop analysis.
