These are the results of an 8 month cohort study in two commercial dairy herds in Northwest Illinois. From each herd, 50 cows were selected at random, stratified over lactations 1 to 3. Serum from these animals was collected every two months and tested for antibodies to Bovine Leukosis Virus, Neospora caninum, and Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis. Animals that left the herd during the study were replaced by another animal in the same herd and lactation. At the last sampling, serum neutralization assays were performed for Bovine Herpesvirus type 1 and Bovine Viral Diarrhea virus type 1 and 2. Production data before and after sampling was collected for the entire herd from PCdart.

Objectives: This study follows-up on previous work that began examining data deposited in an institutional repository. The work here extends the earlier study by answering the following lines of research questions: (1) what is the file composition of datasets ingested into the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus repository? Are datasets more likely to be single file or multiple file items? (2) what is the usage data associated with these datasets? Which items are most popular? Methods: The dataset records collected in this study were identified by filtering item types categorized as "data" or "dataset" using the advanced search function in IDEALS. Returned search results were collected in an Excel spreadsheet to include data such as the Handle identifier, date ingested, file formats, composition code, and the download count from the item's statistics report. The Handle identifier represents the dataset record's persistent identifier. Composition represents codes that categorize items as single or multiple file deposits. Date available represents the date the dataset record was published in the campus repository. Download statistics were collected via a website link for each dataset record and indicates the number of times the dataset record has been downloaded. Once the data was collected, it was used to evaluate datasets deposited into IDEALS. Results: A total of 522 datasets were identified for analysis covering the period between January 2007 and August 2016. This study revealed two influxes occurring during the period of 2008-2009 and in 2014. During the first time frame a large number of PDFs were deposited by the Illinois Department of Agriculture. Whereas, Microsoft Excel files were deposited in 2014 by the Rare Books and Manuscript Library. Single file datasets clearly dominate the deposits in the campus repository. The total download count for all datasets was 139,663 and the average downloads per month per file across all datasets averaged 3.2. Conclusion: Academic librarians, repository managers, and research data services staff can use the results presented here to anticipate the nature of research data that may be deposited within institutional repositories. With increased awareness, content recruitment, and improvements, IRs can provide a viable cyberinfrastructure for researchers to deposit data, but much can be learned from the data already deposited. Awareness of trends can help librarians facilitate discussions with researchers about research data deposits as well as better tailor their services to address short-term and long-term research needs.

If you use this dataset, please cite the IJRR data paper (bibtex is below). We present a dataset collected from a canoe along the Sangamon River in Illinois. The canoe was equipped with a stereo camera, an IMU, and a GPS device, which provide visual data suitable for stereo or monocular applications, inertial measurements, and position data for ground truth. We recorded a canoe trip up and down the river for 44 minutes covering 2.7 km round trip. The dataset adds to those previously recorded in unstructured environments and is unique in that it is recorded on a river, which provides its own set of challenges and constraints that are described in this paper. The data is divided into subsets, which can be downloaded individually. Video previews are available on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOU9e7xxqmL_s4QX6jsGZSw The information below can also be found in the README files provided in the 527 dataset and each of its subsets. The purpose of this document is to assist researchers in using this dataset. Images ====== Raw --- The raw images are stored in the cam0 and cam1 directories in bmp format. They are bayered images that need to be debayered and undistorted before they are used. The camera parameters for these images can be found in camchain-imucam.yaml. Note that the camera intrinsics describe a 1600x1200 resolution image, so the focal length and center pixel coordinates must be scaled by 0.5 before they are used. The distortion coefficients remain the same even for the scaled images. The camera to imu tranformation matrix is also in this file. cam0/ refers to the left camera, and cam1/ refers to the right camera. Rectified --------- Stereo rectified, undistorted, row-aligned, debayered images are stored in the rectified/ directory in the same way as the raw images except that they are in png format. The params.yaml file contains the projection and rotation matrices necessary to use these images. The resolution of these parameters do not need to be scaled as is necessary for the raw images. params.yml ---------- The stereo rectification parameters. R0,R1,P0,P1, and Q correspond to the outputs of the OpenCV stereoRectify function except that 1s and 2s are replaced by 0s and 1s, respectively. R0: The rectifying rotation matrix of the left camera. R1: The rectifying rotation matrix of the right camera. P0: The projection matrix of the left camera. P1: The projection matrix of the right camera. Q: Disparity to depth mapping matrix T_cam_imu: Transformation matrix for a point in the IMU frame to the left camera frame. camchain-imucam.yaml -------------------- The camera intrinsic and extrinsic parameters and the camera to IMU transformation usable with the raw images. T_cam_imu: Transformation matrix for a point in the IMU frame to the camera frame. distortion_coeffs: lens distortion coefficients using the radial tangential model. intrinsics: focal length x, focal length y, principal point x, principal point y resolution: resolution of calibration. Scale the intrinsics for use with the raw 800x600 images. The distortion coefficients do not change when the image is scaled. T_cn_cnm1: Transformation matrix from the right camera to the left camera.

The columns are defined by: unused: The first column is all 1s and can be ignored. software frame number: This number increments at the end of every iteration of the software loop. camera frame number: This number is generated by the camera and increments each time the shutter is triggered. The software and camera frame numbers do not have to start at the same value, but if the difference between the initial and final values is not the same, it suggests that frames may have been dropped. camera timestamp: This is the cameras internal timestamp of the frame capture in units of 100 milliseconds. PC timestamp: This is the PC time of arrival of the image. name.kml -------- The kml file is a mapping file that can be read by software such as Google Earth. It contains the recorded GPS trajectory. name.unicsv ----------- This is a csv file of the GPS trajectory in UTM coordinates that can be read by gpsbabel, software for manipulating GPS paths. @article{doi:10.1177/0278364917751842, author = {Martin Miller and Soon-Jo Chung and Seth Hutchinson}, title ={The Visual–Inertial Canoe Dataset}, journal = {The International Journal of Robotics Research}, volume = {37}, number = {1}, pages = {13-20}, year = {2018}, doi = {10.1177/0278364917751842}, URL = {https://doi.org/10.1177/0278364917751842}, eprint = {https://doi.org/10.1177/0278364917751842} }

Transport and MFM data of brickwork artificial spin ice composed of permalloy are included, which are reproductions of the data in an article named "Magnetic response of brickwork artificial spin ice". Transport data represent magnetic response of connected brickwork artificial spin ice, and MFM data represent how both connected and disconnected brickwork artificial spin ice react to external magnetic fields. SEM images of typical samples are included, where individual nanowire leg (island) is approximately 660 nm long and 140 nm wide with a 40 nm thickness. For the transport, each sample was measured in a longitudinal and a transverse geometry. Red curves are the 2500 Oe to -2500 Oe sweeps and the blue curves are -2500 Oe to 2500 Oe sweeps. Transport measurements were taken by using a standard 4-wire technique. Each plot was saved in pdf format.
