  "abstract": "<p>This data set consists of 6691 images that were collected by the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL, Curosity) rover by three instruments (Mastcam Right eye, Mastcam Left eye, and MAHLI).\u00a0 These images are the \"browse\" version of each original data product, not full resolution.\u00a0 They are roughly 256x256 pixels each.</p>\n\n<p>We divided the MSL images into train, validation, and test data sets according to their sol (Martian day) of acquisition.\u00a0 This strategy was chosen to model how the system will be used operationally with an image archive that grows over time.\u00a0 The images were collected from sols 3 to 1060 (August 2012 to July 2015).\u00a0 The exact train/validation/test splits are given in individual files.\u00a0 Full-size images can be obtained from the PDS at .</p>\n\n<p><strong>Contents</strong>:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>calibrated/: Directory containing calibrated MSL images</li>\n\t<li>train-calibrated-shuffled.txt: Training labels (images in shuffled order)</li>\n\t<li>val-calibrated-shuffled.txt: Validation labels</li>\n\t<li>test-calibrated-shuffled.txt: Test labels</li>\n\t<li>msl_synset_words-indexed.txt: Mapping from class IDs to class names</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p><strong>Attribution</strong>:</p>\n\n<p>If you use this data set in your own work, please cite this DOI:</p>\n\n<p>10.5281/zenodo.1049137</p>\n\n<p>Please also cite this paper, which provides additional details about the data set.</p>\n\n<p>Kiri L.
