Overview

The BioID Face Database has been recorded and is published to give all researchers working
in the area of face detection the possibility to compare the quality of their face detection
algorithms with others. It may be used for such purposes without further permission. During
the recording special emphasis has been placed on “real world” conditions. Therefore the testset
features a large variety of illumination, background, and face size.

Data Format

Description of the face database

The dataset consists of 1521 gray level images with a resolution of 384×286 pixel. Each one
shows the frontal view of a face of one out of 23 different test persons. For comparison reasons
the set also contains manually set eye postions. The images are labeled “BioID_xxxx.pgm” where
the characters xxxx are replaced by the index of the current image (with leading zeros). Similar
to this, the files “BioID_xxxx.eye” contain the eye positions for the corresponding images.

Image file format

The images are stored in single files using the portable gray map (pgm) data format. A pgm
file contains a data header followed by the image data. In our case the header consists of
four lines of text. In detail:

  • the first line describes the format of the image data (ASCII/binary).
    In our files the text “P5” indicates that the data is written in binary form
  • the second line contains the image width written in text form
  • the third line keeps the image height also in text form
  • the fourth line contains the maximum allowed gray value (255 in our images)

The header is
followed by a data block containing the image data. The data is stored line per line from top
to bottom using one byte per pixel.

Eye position file format

The eye position files are text files containing a single
comment line followed by the x and the y coordinate of the left eye and the x and the y coordinate
of the right eye separated by spaces. Note that we refer to the left eye as the person’s left
eye. Therefore, when captured by a camera, the position of the left eye is on the image’s right
and vice versa.
