Stephen Meschke - Juggling Data Set -

Start here if...

You are a juggler or data scientist, looking for a simple data set about juggling.


The Juggling Data Set was created by Stephen Meschke in 2018. The data set contains 222,150 frames of tracked video, and 967,902 individual ball locations. There are many forms of juggling. This Juggling Data Set focuses on toss juggling with balls.

This dataset has short videos of several juggling patterns. Tracking software was used to find the balls' locations. The location data is stored in spreadsheet files.

With this dataset, patterns can be analyzed and jugglers can be compared. The tracking data, source video, graphs, and animations are stored in this Google Drive folder and described in the links above.

The Goal

Develop a model that watches a video of juggling and outputs details like trick name and number of catches.
