It is an open dataset for object detection in remote sensing images. The dataset includes aircraft, oiltank, playground and overpass.

The format of this dataset that for PASCAL VOC.

The datase includes 4 files, and each file is for one kind of object. Please download the dataset files from BaiduYun.

  1. aircraft dataset, 4993 aircrafts in 446 images.
  2. playground, 191 playgrounds in 189 images.
  3. overpass, 180 overpass in 176 overpass.
  4. oiltank, 1586 oiltanks in 165 images.

Please cite our paper if the dataset is useful for you. Thank you!
