Singapore Maritime Dataset(SMD)

We have created Singapore Maritime Dataset, using Canon 70D cameras around Singapore waters. All the videos are acquired in high definition (1080X1920 pixels). We divide the dataset into parts, on-shore videos and on-board videos, which are acquired by camera placed on-shore on fixed platform and camera placed on-board a moving vessel, respectively. The videos are acquired at various locations and routes and thus do not necessarily capture the same scene. The third part is Near Infra red (NIR) videos which is also captured using another Canon 70D camera with hot mirror removed and Mid-Opt BP800 Near-IR Bandpass filter.
Acknowledgement- Dataset has been captured by Dilip K. Prasad and annotated by student volunteers. Dataset has been captured on various environmental conditions like before sunrise (40 min before sunrise), sunrise, mid day, afternoon, evening, after sunset (2hrs after sunset), Haze and Rain from July 2015 to May 2016. 

Optical lens used for all the 3 sub-dataset  - Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
