Data Description

See the overview page for a description of the data.

The Data

A montage of all these scenes AND all the non-specular scenes under one illuminant (157 KB).
(This is actually Figure 4.10 of Kobus's thesis. )

A montage of one of the scenes from the joint specular/non-specular set under all illuminants (76 KB).
(This is actually Figure 4.11 of Kobus's thesis. )

All the images (8 bit tiffs, 31.6 MB)
(Recomended for most applications)

All the images (16 bit tiffs, 152.2 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).
