The training set (train_set/) is composed of context and electric current measurements data for the following three Martian years:

The test set (test_set/) is composed of context data only for the following fourth Martian year:

A Martian year is defined by 687 earth days. Note that space communication issues may have introduced gaps in the given data.

Context data

Context files are all in CSV format and are using the following nomenclature:

The following list describes the columns of each of these CSV file types:

Observation data

Observation files are also in CSV format and follow the nomenclature:

These files are present only in the training set (train_set/) as they contain the measured electric current of 33 thermal power lines. Each file contains 34 columns:

Usually one observation is made every 30 seconds or 60 seconds. The goal of the competition is to predict the average electric current per hour.
