License Notes for Train and Val: Since the images in this dataset come from different sources, they are bound by different licenses.

Images for bar charts, x-y plots, maps, pie charts, tables, and technical drawings were downloaded directly from wikimedia commons. License and authorship information is stored independently for each image in these categories in the wikimedia_commons_licenses.csv file. Each row (note: some rows are multi-line) is formatted so: ,,,;

Images in the slides category were taken from presentations which were downloaded from Wikimedia Commons. The names of the presentations on Wikimedia Commons omits the trailing underscore, number, and file extension, and ends with .pdf instead. The source materials' licenses are shown in source_slices_licenses.csv.

Wikimedia commons photos' information page can be found at "".
