Data Description

See the overview page for a description of the data.

The Data

A montage of all the scenes under one illuminant (127 KB).
(This is actually Figure 8.4 of Kobus's thesis. )

A montage of one of the scenes under all illuminants (153 KB).
(This is actually Figure 8.5 of Kobus's thesis. )

All the images (8 bit tiffs, 39.9 MB)
(Recomended for most applications)

All the images (16 bit tiffs, 215 MB)
(The 16 bit images have only a small amount of extra data beyond the 8 bit images--the true dynamic range of the images is 9-10 bits).
