Finger Database

NIST Databases
Size: various of special databases
test data produced by the Image Group to evaluate automated fingerprint classification/matching
Size: 150 fingers/ DB ,12 samples/ finger

four DBs are collected by four kinds of sensors image format is BMP, 256 gray-levels, uncompressed

Size: FVC2004 120 fingers/ DB,12 samples/ finger ,3 sessions
four DBs are collected by four kinds of sensors
FVC2004 databases are markedly more difficult than FVC2002 and FVC2000
Size: 110 fingers / DB, 8 samples / finger
four DBs are collected by four kinds of sensors
Palm Database
CASIA Palmprint Database
Size: 301 subjects, 5,239 images
All images are captured all by common web cameras in a contact-less palmprint recognition system, which is firstly developed by CASIA.
PolyU Palmprint Database 2nd
Size: 386 palms7,752 images
Around twenty samples from each of these palms were collected in two sessions, where around 10 samples were captured in the first session and the second session, respectively. The average interval between the first and the second collection was two months.
UST Hand Image Database
Size: 5,660 images of 283 subjects
All images contain complete hand regions, which reserve hand shape information precisely. All hand image are color images in JPEG format.
Eye Movement Biometric Database
Size: 358 eye movement recordings collected from 59 unique individuals
Equipment: All recordings are captured by an Eye Link II eye tracker at the sampling rate of 1000Hz. Chin rest is employed to stabilize subjects' heads during the recording.
Stimulus: pulse-step (jumping dot of light) vertical and horizontal, textual
Recording intervals: response to pulse-step stimulus is collected in two sessions over the course of a single day, the response to textual stimulus is collected in four sessions over the course of one week.
Data quality: average calibration error prior to each recording is 1.1 degrees of the visual angle (SD=1.25), average dataloss during recording 3.59% (SD=0.05%)
