Oil Spill Detection Dataset contains jpg images extracted from satellite Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data depicting oil spills and other relevant instances, as well as their corresponding ground truth masks. Initial SAR data were collected from the European Space Agency (ESA) database, the Copernicus Open Access Hub acquired via the Sentinel-1 European Satellite missions. The required geographic coordinates and time of the confirmed oil spills were provided by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) based on the CleanSeaNet service records, covering a period from 28/09/2015 up to 31/10/2017.
In order to provide you with the dataset you have to follow the following steps:
- Prepare a title and a short description (abstract) for your project that will benefit.
- Send us an email (based on the indicated template) using your institution’s email. In order to grant you access to the data, we need it to contain the template statements.
Before you apply:
- Be as specific as possible about your access request.
- In the case of undergraduate and postgraduate students, you should ask your supervisor to complete the above form, and mention you as a supervisee. We cannot collaborate with researchers who do not have a full-time academic contract.
- If you intend to request for an alternative collaboration agreement, please provide explanations about why you consider your request as appropriate.
