Thermal dataset 1

Person annotation dataset

This dataset contains a ~16 minutes of video (30,000 frames) recorded in a sports arena. Every person inside the court area is annotated.

The Image below shows the camera placement and the visible part of the court.

The image below show an example of an annotated frame. The red dots mark the persons position on the court and the green line indicates the border of the court.

Annotated image

The dataset consist of raw images grapped from the video and text files containing the image coordinates of the red dots and the total number of persons on the court. An exampel from a text file can be seen below. The image coordinates are written x,y,x,y,x,y,x,y…

framenumber: 26006;
manual image coordinates: 166,195,193,82,189,70,227,69,264,76,281,62,293,62,315,73;
manual number of persons: 8;
framenumber: 26007;
manual image coordinates: 168,195,192,81,224,69,189,68,281,66,293,64,316,74;
manual number of persons: 7;

With the text files comes also a file named court.txt that contains the corners for the court in image coordinates and a file named homography.txt that contains a homopgraphy to calculate the world coordinates of the persons. (0,0) is in the lower left corner of the court seen in the first picture.
