Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
First sheet shows the datasets used for statistical analysis. Other sheets show 3D digitized data from 5 individual maple seeds during free-fall and when launched either vertically or launched horizontally. Each sheet displays the sparse digitized data from DLTdv6.m software: seed tip (point 1 and 2), seed root (points 3 and 4), and seed tip at maximal length (points 5 and 6), corresponding to (x, y) Cartesian coordinates in units of cm. Software is described in: Hedrick, T. L. (2008). Software techniques for two- and three-dimensional kinematic measurements of biological and biomimetic systems. Bioinspir. Biomim. 3, 034001.
