Dataset Open Access
This data set was compiled to aid in evaluating methods for automated analysis of images to detect planetary bodies and limbs. It contains manually generated labels for 308 NASA images of planets and moons. The labels annotate the location of the limb (edge) of the body and plumes emitted by the body, if any. "Plume" in this context refers to any bright material emitted from the body, such as icy plumes from Enceladus or volcanic plumes from Io. 112 of the labeled images contain plumes.
This data set covers images collected by the following instruments:
The target bodies include the planet Mercury; Jupiter's moons Callisto, Europa, Ganymede, and Io; and Saturn's moon Enceladus.
There is a directory for each instrument_target combination:
Source images: The images that are associated with each label file can be obtained from the Planetary Data System (PDS) at https://pds-imaging.jpl.nasa.gov/search . For Cassini ISS, MESSENGER MDIS, and New Horizons LORRI images, search on the product id from the label filename. For example, the product id for
For Galileo SSI images, the filename does not include the product id. A list of the source product ids is included in the file named
Labels are stored in YAML format. The limb is annotated as a series of points marked along the limb such that a least-squares circle fit of those points provides a model of the body's limb ("points" field). Plumes, when present, are indicated as one or more angular ranges (in radians) around the limb within which plume activity is present ("plumes"->"intervals" field). Angles are specified starting with 0 radians (up) and proceeding clockwise. The user who generated the labels is recorded in the "user" field.
Six points define the limb of the body, and there are two areas of plume activity.
