The Data

The ASAPS data is the first of its kind.

The ASAPS development dataset includes 8 continuous hours across five core streams: stationary video, public safety audio (911 and responder to responder), Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD), public safety sensors, and social media. The data set also includes a Shapefile of a fully georeferenced 80 square block city, including lat/long and building attributes.


Within the data, there are emergency events, false alarms, and confusors, as well as normal activity across all data streams and modalities.
