UVCLI Database

The Unconstrained Visible Spectrum Contact Lens Iris (UVCLI) database consists of 3,802 iris images captured in visible spectrum at two locations: indoors (with controlled illumination) and outdoors (with varying environmental scenarios) in two sessions. These images have been captured one at a time using EOS 60D DSLR Canon camera with EFS 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Fixed lens. In each session of data acquisition, a minimum of six images of each eye when wearing textured contact lens and a minimum of six images of each eye without any lens (real) are acquired. These images are captured indoors and this process is repeated in the outdoor environment. Outdoor images have been collected at varying times of the day (such as afternoon and night) and varying weather conditions (such as sunny and cloudy). Majority of the first session outdoor data collection is conducted during the daytime.
