Salzburg Texture Image Database (STex)
This is "The Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab", short WaveLab, website. We are a research group at the Artificial Intelligence and Human Interfaces (AIHI) Department of the University of Salzburg led by Andreas Uhl. Our research is focused on Visual Data Processing and associated security questions. Most of our work is currently concentrated on Biometrics, Media Forensics and Media Security, Medical Image and Video Analysis, and application oriented fundamental research in digital humanities, individualised aquaculture and sustainable wood industry.
The Salzburg Texture Image Database (STex) is a large collection of 476 color texture image that have been captured around Salzburg, Austria. The images have been selected to be used in texture retrieval experiments and are fairly homogeneous. STex is significantly larger than the VisTex texture image database and more homogeneous than databases proposed for texture classification research (Outex, ALOT).
Some example texture images:
STex is available in three different packages:
Each image is named
The images themselves are stored in uncompressed, raw Netpbm format (.pnm).
