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
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.
