This repository documents the ABGQI-CNN manuscript (DOI: It contains supplementary materials, data used to train a soundscape classification convolutional neural network (CNN), and data to generate manuscript results. The accompanying code can be found at Files include: ABGQI-CNN.tar: saved CNN model weights for the 5-class soundscape classifier using a MobileNetV2 architecture pre-trained with bird vocalization data. ABGQI_mel_spectrograms.tar: spectrograms used for fine-tuning the pre-trained CNN, above, with training, validation, and testing data splits. freesound_licensing.csv: file names and license information related to Freesound auxiliary files. RavenLite_Training_Data_Collection.pdf: a manual for RavenLite ROI annotation. S2L_site_geog-env_data.csv: environmental and geographic data (sans GPS) related to site locations in S2L project 2017-2020. site_avg_ABGQIU_fscore_075_daytime.csv: the average site rate of soundscape components for 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. site_by_hour_ABGQIU_fscore_075.csv: the average hourly site rate of soundscape components site_classifications_beta075.tar: a directory containing a CSV for every site with threshold optimized classifications for each 2-s Mel spectrogram site_prediction_probabilies.tar: a directory containing a CSV for every site with ABGQI-CNN probabilities for each 2-s Mel spectrogram Supplementary_Materials.pdf: includes additional material and analyses related to the accompanying manuscript.
