Introduction #

Harsh Panwar, P.K. Gupta, Mohammad Khubeb Siddiquiet al.

The authors released an open-source AquaTrash Dataset which consists of 369 images from 4 different categories related to various litter items. All the images in the AquaTrash dataset are manually annotated to obtain accuracy in the results. The dataset is based on the TACO data set.

Note, similar AquaTrash Dataset dataset is also available on the DatasetNinja.com:

Motivation

The escalating global pollution levels have emerged as a paramount concern for individuals, policymakers, and environmentalists alike. Substantial efforts are underway to mitigate air and water pollution, primarily driven by human activities. The pervasive impact of human-induced pollution is evident through the ubiquitous presence of waste across the planet, from remote regions like the Himalayas to vast expanses such as the Indian Ocean. Presently, the oceans are burdened with an estimated 5.25 trillion litter objects, a figure that continues to escalate daily. Among this staggering quantity of debris are numerous hazardous materials that pose significant threats to marine ecosystems. These pollutants encompass a range of harmful substances including plastics, bottles, chemical waste, and various toxic contaminants, contributing to widespread environmental degradation.

The adverse effects of marine pollution extend beyond environmental concerns, posing severe ramifications for small-scale economic activities reliant on marine resources. Alarmingly, it is estimated that approximately 90% of the world’s fisheries have already been depleted, signaling a dire state of affairs. Projections indicate a concerning trajectory, with the anticipated ratio of fish to plastic waste projected to equalize at 1:1 by 2050, compared to 1:5 in 2014. This alarming trend underscores the urgent need for proactive measures to mitigate environmental degradation. Swift action is imperative to steer away from this perilous path and safeguard the integrity of our ecosystems, as it stands as an urgent imperative for the present moment.

Dataset description

There are very few open-source datasets available which consist of a large number of garbage images and could be used for the proposed study. A comparative study has been done between the two available datasets – TrashNet and TACO dataset. Both the datasets have some shortcomings such as either the annotations were crowdsourced and unreliable or there were no annotations at all. So, the authors have proposed an other dataset AquaTrash to perform various experiments using the proposed AquaVision model. They have also released an open-source dataset AquaTrash which consists of 369 images from 4 different categories related to various litter items. All the images in the AquaTrash are manually annotated to obtain accuracy in the results. The AquaTrash dataset consists of 369 images from the TACO dataset and represents manually annotated trash objects in each image.

Summary #

AquaTrash Dataset is a dataset for an object detection task. It is used in the environmental industry.

The dataset consists of 369 images with 469 labeled objects belonging to 4 different classes including plastic, paper, metal, and other: glass.

Images in the AquaTrash dataset have bounding box annotations. All images are labeled (i.e. with annotations). There are no pre-defined train/val/test splits in the dataset. The dataset was released in 2020 by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, India, School of Engineering and Sciences, Mexico, and Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Bangladesh.

Co-occurrence matrix #

Co-occurrence matrix is an extremely valuable tool that shows you the images for every pair of classes: how many images have objects of both classes at the same time. If you click any cell, you will see those images. We added the tooltip with an explanation for every cell for your convenience, just hover the mouse over a cell to preview the description.

Images #

Explore every single image in the dataset with respect to the number of annotations of each class it has. Click a row to preview selected image. Sort by any column to find anomalies and edge cases. Use horizontal scroll if the table has many columns for a large number of classes in the dataset.

Object distribution #

Interactive heatmap chart for every class with object distribution shows how many images are in the dataset with a certain number of objects of a specific class. Users can click cell and see the list of all corresponding images.

Class sizes #

The table below gives various size properties of objects for every class. Click a row to see the image with annotations of the selected class. Sort columns to find classes with the smallest or largest objects or understand the size differences between classes.
