Here we present OpenSARUrban: a Sentinel-1 dataset dedicated to the content- related interpretation of urban SAR images, including a well- defined hierarchical annotation scheme, data collection, well- established procedures for dataset compilation and organization as well as properties, visualizations, and applications of this dataset. Particularly, our OpenSARUrban collection provides 33,358 image patches of urban SAR scenes, covering 21 major cities of China, including 10 different target area categories, 4 kinds of data formats, 2 kinds of polarization modes, and owning 5 essential properties: large-scale coverage, diversity, specificity, reliability, and sustainability.
