SAR Change Detection Dataset

The San Francisco Dataset with 256*256 pixels is extracted from the scene over the city of San Francisco (California) and its bay. The original images are 7749*7713 pixels, and are available in Earthnet Online [1]. The images are captured in August 2003 and May 2004, respectively. The ground truth change map in Fig. 1(c) is generated by integrating prior information with photo interpretation based on the input images in Fig. 1(a) and Fig. 1(b).
