The BePLi Dataset v1 (Beach Plastic Litter Dataset version 1) comprised 3708 original images taken in various coastal environments and the corresponding instance-based and pixel-level annotations for all plastic litter objects in the images are compiled in MSCOCO (Microsoft Common Objects in Context) Object Detection Task format. The format is partially intendedly modified from the original MSCOCO format.
