Data Sets

Since 2008, WVU has performed large, medium, and small scale biometric data collection projects to accomplish the following goals:

  • Build research datasets to train humans, algorithms, and systems
  • Evaluate prototype sensor operation
  • Data interoperability (e.g. contact-less vs. contact-based fingerprint sensors)
  • Human factors
  • Explore the application of new modalities/methods
  • Short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagers for cross-spectral facial identification
