On this page, you find the data sets used in the article Active Learning for Classifying Template Matches in Historical Maps. The data sets have been created by applying template matching on bitmap images of historical maps. The table below provides basic information about the individual data sets, including the respective template used in template matching.
Every dataset can be downloaded as a .csv file, each of which contains 1.000 samples. The samples consist of the following three attributes:
The attribute to be predicted is correctness. Note that for some templates, there are additional characters that were considered correct besides the character shown in the template. This is mostly because the character in the template is visually contained in the additional characters on the specific map. For details, see the discussion in the article.
