GID is large-scale land-cover dataset with Gaofen-2 (GF-2) satellite images. This new dataset, which is named as Gaofen Image Dataset (GID), has superiorities over the existing land-cover dataset because of its large coverage, wide distribution, and high spatial resolution. GID consists of two parts: a large-scale classification set and a fine land-cover classification set. The large-scale classification set contains 150 pixel-level annotated GF-2 images, and the fine classification set is composed of 30,000 multi-scale image patches coupled with 10 pixel-level annotated GF-2 images. The training and validation data with 15 categories is collected and re-labeled based on the training and validation images with 5 categories, respectively.
