Project Description

Dataset Description

This cherry tree disease detection dataset is a multimodal, multi-angle dataset which was constructed for monitoring the growth of cherry trees, including stress analysis and prediction. An orchard of cherry trees is considered in the area of Western Macedonia, where 577 cherry trees were recorded in a full crop season starting from Jul. 2021 to Jul. 2022. The dataset includes a) aerial / Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) images, b) ground RGB images/photos, and c) ground multispectral images/photos. Two agronomist experts annotated the dataset by identifying a stress, which in this case is a common disease in cherry trees known as Armillaria.
