In the article Vehicle Detection in Aerial Images the authors used a dataset of vehicles from aerial view called itcvd. I could not find any information on it online.

How can I obtain more information on it or download it?


Halfway they state:

Furthermore, we introduce a novel large-scale and well annotated dataset for quantitative vehicle detection evaluation - ITCVD.
Towards this goal, we collected 173 images with 29088 vehicles, where each vehicle in the ITCVD dataset is manually annotated using a bounding box.

I think they used this one as the source:

The last-but-one reference in the paper gives you your clue: Xia, G., Bai, X., Ding, J., Zhu, Z., Belongie, S., Luo, J., Datcu, M., Pelillo, M., Zhang, L., 2017. DOTA: A large-scale dataset for object detection in aerial images. CoRR abs/1711.10398.

If you use DOTA: A large-scale dataset for object detection in aerial images as search term you find it here.

Alternatively, contact the authors. They say:

We make our code and dataset online available


I found a link on the author's website: https://sites.google.com/site/michaelyingyang/publica

Dataset: https://eostore.itc.utwente.nl:5001/fsdownload/zZYfgbB2X/ITCVD

The SSL certificate was invalid but I proceed anyhow and could download the data. I swear to God, this is not a scam. The data is really there.

  • Saying "I swear to God this is not a scam" makes this sound 100% more like a scam. – csk Jul 16 '19 at 18:25
