Item Identification

Title: A Dataset for Machine Learning Algorithm Development
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2020
Publication Date: 2021

This dataset consists of imagery, imagery footprints, associated ice seal detections and homography files associated with the KAMERA Test Flights conducted in 2019. This dataset was subset to include relevant data for detection algorithm development. This dataset is limited to data collected during flights 4, 5, 6 and 7 from our 2019 surveys.


To develop machine learning algorithms for detecting ice seals and classifying ice seal species using IR and RGB imagery.
