Learning Calibrated-Guidance for Object Detection in Aerial Images

This codebase is created to build benchmarks for object detection in aerial images. It is modified from mmdetection. The master branch works with PyTorch 1.1 or higher. If you would like to use PyTorch 0.4.1, please checkout to the pytorch-0.4.1 branch.


Visualization results for oriented object detection on the test set of DOTA.

Comparison to the baseline on DOTA for oriented object detection with ResNet-101. The figures with blue boxes are the results of the baseline and pink boxes are the results of our proposed CG-Net.
