Multi-city street-sidewalk imagery from pedestrian mobile cameras


Jain, Shubham (2020), Multi-city street-sidewalk imagery from pedestrian mobile cameras, Dryad, Dataset,


We present TerraFirma, a multi-city dataset which captures street and sidewalk imagery from the pedestrians' perspective. Motivated by challenges in the realm of pedestrian safety, we present a diverse and extensive dataset that provides a foundation for the design and validation of pedestrian safety systems that rely on street-sidewalk imagery. The data was collected by 9 volunteers in 4 metropolitan cities across the world. Volunteers carried mobile cameras or smartphones in a texting position, such that the rear camera was directed to the ground in front of them. TerraFirma classifies images by the material used for street/sidewalk construction in each city.
