Taco is an open image dataset of waste in the wild. It contains photos of litter taken under diverse environments, from tropical beaches to London streets. These images are manually labeled and segmented according to a hierarchical taxonomy to train and evaluate object detection algorithms. The best way to know TACO is to explore our dataset.
For convenience, annotations are provided in COCO format. TACO is still a baby, but it is growing and you can help it! Our plan is to eventually open benchmark challenges.
