NESP TWQ Round 5 - Project 5.5 – Measuring aesthetic and experience values using Big Data approaches

This proposed research responds to the urgent need of understanding how ecological changes affect the aesthetic value and the user experience of the Great Barrier Reef, and how these could be measured and monitored in a cost-effective way. The research capitalises on two major trends, namely peoples’ ability and willingness to share large amounts of information through various online platforms, and rapid development in computing technology to store, process and interpret these data.
