Aquafarms in the Mediterranean Sea
The dataset comprises bounding boxes of 23 aquafarms in the Mediterranean Sea. We assume that from a satellite perspective the signal received from them is very similar to the signal of ghost nets. Thus, we are using satellite images of these locations to train a CNN for ghost net detection in the project TRACE. Most of these aquafarms are in place since many years. Thus, you can download images such as Sentinel-2 covering a large time span, different states of weather and sea. The farms are stable in there position, however, they can move a few meters depending on the wind direction and currents.
