Abstract / Details:
This is a synthetic soft and hard data set inspired by a Counter Insurgency (COIN) scenario in Baghdat, Iraq. It covers a four month period: 1 January 2010-May 2010.
It was created under a United States Multi-disciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) program funded by the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO). The dataset includes realistic synthetic reports from a variety of sources, corresponding synthetic hard data, and an extensive supporting database that maintains "ground truth" through logical grouping of related data into "vignettes." The supporting database also maintains the pedigree of messages and other critical metadata.
Interested parties should contact Jacob L. Graham, David L. Hall or Jeffrey Rimland, at the College of Information Science & Technology, Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park, PA, USA.
