The UrbanOccupationsOETR_Generalkarte_MapText_DCNN_dataset contains sample material for text detection and recognition from the Generalkarte (the 3rd Military Mapping Survey of Austria-Hungary) Map. We provided 53 annotated image tiles (1024×1024) divided into a separate training and validation folder. In all images, text regions and non-text regions are labeled.
