Dataset Open Access
This package consists of two evaluation datasets, TAU Spatial Sound Events 2019 - Ambisonic and TAU Spatial Sound Events 2019 - Microphone Array. These datasets contain recordings from an identical scene, with TAU Spatial Sound Events 2019 - Ambisonic providing four-channel First-Order Ambisonic (FOA) recordings while TAU Spatial Sound Events 2019 - Microphone Array provides four-channel directional microphone recordings from a tetrahedral array configuration. Both formats are extracted from the same microphone array. The recordings in the two datasets consist of stationary point sources from multiple sound classes each associated with a temporal onset and offset time, and DOA coordinate represented using azimuth and elevation angle. These evaluation datasets are part of the DCASE 2019 Sound Event Localization and Detection Task. The corresponding development datasets can be downloaded here.
The IRs were collected in Finland by Tampere University between 12/2017 - 06/2018. The data collection received funding from the European Research Council, grant agreement 637422 EVERYSOUND.
-- Version 2 updates --
The DCASE 2019 sound event localization and detection task has now ended. Hence we are releasing the reference labels for the evaluation dataset in this version.
