Aesthetic value of the Great Barrier Reef 2017 (NESP TWQ 3.2.3, Griffith Institute for Tourism Research)

This dataset resulted from two inter-linked research streams. The first stream was related to the application of eye-tracking technology and an online survey in studying natural beauty. The second stream is related to the development of an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based system recognising and assessing the beauty of natural scenes. Due to differences in data collection and data analysis, details of research methods used for each research stream are described in three separated data records. Within these research streams, three datasets were developed. These include: Eye tracking - containing the outcome documents of eye-tracking experiment conducted within the project framework Online survey - includes a survey format document and three subfolders showing how each section of the survey was designed and outcome of each section (i.e. conjoint analysis, picture rating and open question) Algorithm data reflecting how a computer-based system for automated assessment of image attractiveness is developed Format and methods: The project dataset has multiple parts containing data of different formats and methods. Details of each dataset are discussed in the corresponding data records.
