High Resolution Semantic Change Detection Dataset
This dataset contains 291 coregistered image pairs of RGB aerial images from IGS’s BD ORTHO database. Pixel-level change and land cover annotations are provided, generated by rasterizing Urban Atlas 2006, Urban Atlas 2012, and Urban Atlas Change 2006-2012 maps.
The dataset is split into five parts:
- 2006 images
- 2012 images
- Change labels
- 2006 land cover maps
- 2012 land cover maps
The 2006 images are under a non-redistributable licence, but can be downloaded directly from IGN’s website ( https://geoservices.ign.fr/documentation/diffusion/telechargement-donnees-libres.html#bd-ortho-50-cm or https://www.geoportail.gouv.fr/carte). The necessary files are:
- BD ORTHO® 50 cm, D 14 - CALVADOS, 2005
- BD ORTHO® 50 cm, D 35 - ILLE-ET-VILLAINE, 2006 For help with downloading the images please contact the authors.
Change labels are available for all image pairs in the dataset. Available classes:
- 0: No change
- 1: Change
Land cover maps are available for all images in the dataset. Urban Atlas classes have been grouped at first hierarchical level, as described in the paper cited above. Available classes:
- 0: No information
- 1: Artificial surfaces
- 2: Agricultural areas
- 3: Forests
- 4: Wetlands
- 5: Water
