Protect Mobile Iris Database Groundtruth (PROTMI-GT)

This is "The Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab", short WaveLab, website. We are a research group at the Computer Sciences Department of the University of Salzburg headed by Andreas Uhl. The short name "WaveLab" already indicates that wavelets are among our favorite tools - we have 15 years of experience in this area. Our research is focused on Multimedia Security including Watermarking, Image and Video Compression, Medical Image Classification, and Biometrics.

Papers

Software

This package only provides the ground truth (and mask files) for the PROTECT Multimodal Iris DB version 1, the actual database containing the iris images can be requested at: http://projectprotect.eu/dataset.

The software to use this parameter files is the USIT (`manuseg`), the USIT is available at http://www.wavelab.at/sources/USIT.


README

The groundtruth is available only for non-rotated items. The rotated items would have to be preprocessed prior to putting them in the biometric pipeline.

  • operatorA contains the groundtruth by operator A (Philip Lechenauer)

If you use this data cite the following paper:

Heinz Hofbauer, Ehsaneddin Jalilian, Ana F. Sequeira, James Ferryman and Andreas Uhl : "Mobile NIR Iris Recognition: Identifying Problems and Solutions", in Proceedings of the IEEE 9th International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications, and Systems (BTAS2018), 2018.

Bibtex entry for the paper:

@inproceedings{Hofbauer18b, author = {Heinz Hofbauer and Ehsaneddin Jalilian and Ana F. Sequeira and James Ferryman and Andreas Uhl }, title = {Mobile NIR Iris Recognition: Identifying Problems and Solutions}, year = {2018}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the IEEE 9th International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications, and Systems (BTAS2018)}, pages = {9}, }

Tools required

The manuseg tool from the USIT toolbox is required for the processing of the data, it can be found at: http://wavelab.at/sources/USIT/

This database only contains the groundtruth not the actual iris images, these can be requested at: http://projectprotect.eu/dataset
