The Picasso Experiment, 2017

Raw data format

Submitted Time, Completed Time

Submission and completion date and time

Timestamp.2, Timestamp.3, Timestamp..

Unix timestamp - time in Unix Epoch seconds at the start and end of survey questions or survey question blocks.

datafieldlong, datafieldlongfinal

Every "datafieldlong" and "datafieldlongfinal" data point in the raw data consists of two integers separated by a colon, like so:

106:963

Here, the first value represents the position of the eyes, from 1 to 200. And the second integer represents the time in milliseconds since the last movement of the dial, or since the moment the page was first shown:

dial_position : interval

Each data of these sets is itself separated by a comma, so after some dial rotation you end up with the following type of data in "datafieldlong" and "datafieldlongfinal":

158:9043,157:93,156:28,155:50,154:36,153:45,152:24,151:87,150:74,150:18,149:17,148:70,147:63,146:85,146:97, 145:51,144:92,144:41,143:32,142:134,142:59,141:190,140:100,139:60,139:32,138:46,137:46,137:33,136:61,135:57, 135:51,135:15,134:306,134:101,134:2086,134:588,139:1699,121:4,121:16,120:17,120:132,120:22,119:100,119:64, 121:288,122:100,122:15,123:17,124:28,124:206,125:99,125:28,126:50,126:601, ...

Dial position 9999 represents trials were the dial was not changed by the participants.

lastvalue, lastvaluefinal

The position of the dial from 1-200 for the first and second (final) rotation questions. See here for additional background information.

Dial position 9999 represents trials were the dial was not changed by the participants.

rotate_final_value__first_round, rotate_final__second_round

The position of the eyes from 1-100, calculated on basis of the dial data, using if (x >= 100) then x = 200 - x. See here for additional background information.

Eye position 9999 represents those trials were the dial was not changed by the participants.
