Agus Eko Minarno,


Batik is one of the Indonesian cultural heritages which have noble cultural and philosophical meaning in every motif. This article introduces a dataset from Yogyakarta, Indonesia, "Batik Nitik 960". Dataset was captured from a piece of fabric consisting of 60 Nitik motifs. The dataset provided by Paguyuban Pecinta Batik Indonesia (PPBI) Sekar Jagad Yogyakarta, collection of Winotosasto Batik, and the data taken in APIPS Gallery. The dataset is divided into 60 categories with a total of 960 images, and each class has 16 photos. The images were captured by Sony Alpha a6400, lighting using Godox SK II 400, and data was filtered using jpg format. Each category has four motifs and is augmented using rotation using 90, 180, and 270 degrees. Each class has a philosophical meaning which describes the history of the motif. This dataset allows the training and validation of machine learning models to classify, retrieve, or generate a new batik motif using a generative adversarial network. To our knowledge, this is the first publicly available Batik Nitik dataset with philosophical meaning. Data provides by a collaboration of PPBI Sekar Jagad Yogyakarta, Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang, and Universitas Gadjah Mada. Hope this dataset "Batik Nitik 960" can support batik research and we are open to research collaboration.
