|Description (include details on usage, files and paper references)||We are releasing the Aberystwyth Leaf Evaluation dataset acquired to support the work of the EPSRC funded project Dynamic Modelling of Plant Growth with Computer Vision (grant code EP/LO17253/1) in the hope that its availability will help further advance the state of the art in the use of image analysis for plant sciences. It is a visible light, top down, timelapse image dataset of Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis). It incorporates the original images, some with leaf-level ground truth annotations, harvested plant ground truth data and scanned images together with supporting software.
4 sets of 20 Arabidopsis Thaliana plants have been grown in trays
Images of each tray are taken in a 15 minute timelapse sequence using a robotic greenhouse system
Periodically, plants from each tray are sacrificed to record destructive measurements
A subset of these images have been hand-annotated to provide leaf-based image ground truth.
In total, there are 56 annotated ground truth images containing 916 hand-marked up individual arabidopsis plants
We also release software to help with the analysis of these images
