The data presented in this article provide load-dependent collagen fiber architecture (CFA) of one representative bovine tendon tissue sample and two representative porcine mitral valve anterior leaflet tissues, and they are stored in a MATLAB MAT-file format. Each dataset contains: (i) the number of pixel points, (ii) the array of pixel's x- and y-coordinates, (iii) the three acquired pixel intensity arrays, and (iv) the Delaunay triangulation for visualization purpose. This dataset is associated with a companion journal article, which can be consulted for further information about the methodology, results, and discussion of the opto-mechanical characterization of the tissue's CFA's (Jett etal. [1]).
