Animal detection is an active research topic in recent years. Horse’s face detection is an important task in the world and in order to promote horse’s detection and recognition research, the REGIM-Lab.: REsearch Groups in Intelligent Machines, ENIS, University of Sfax, Tunisia will provide the Tunisian Horses Detection Database (THDD Database) freely of charge to mainly horses’ face detection researchers and to increase total of researches done to enhance animal detection.
All documents and papers that uses the Tunisian Horses Detection Database (THDD Database) will acknowledge the use of the database by including an appropriate citation to the following:
