Whale FM Archive
About Whale FM
The project was designed to organise recordings of Orca and Pilot Whale calls. Volunteers were asked to match sounds to the most-similar call from a range of other recordings. Data provided by WHOI.
The original Whale FM site was built as a branch of the Zooniverse's Juggernaut Rails 3 app.
All the original classifications, assets (images and sound file), and other ancillary Rails tables have been preserved in both Gzipped MySQL and CSV formats. All user data has been stripped, reducing each user to a unique id integer.
These include a table of matches that show how many times each pair of calls were marked by volunteers as a match, explicitly as a non-match, or skipped entirely (i.e. were confusing).
The data is stored in this repo within the CSV, SQL, and JSON subdirectories. An archive site now exists at whale.fm with more links and information.
