DIAST Variability Illuminated Thermal and Visible Ear Image Dataset
This is a collection of paired thermal and visible ear images. Images in this dataset were acquired in different illumination conditions ranging between 2 and 10700 lux. There are total 2200 images of which 1100 are thermal images while the other 1100 are their corresponding visible images. Images consisted of left and right ear images of 55 subjects. Images were capture in 5 illumination conditiond for every subjects. This dataset was developed for illumination invariant ear recognition study. In addition it can also be useful for thermal and visible image fusion research.
The images in this dataset can be used as is. It was intended ear recognition in visible or thermal spectrum. There is also possibility for image fusion application.
