by Allan G. Weber

September 1997

The USC-SIPI image database is maintained primarily to support research in image processing, image analysis, and machine vision. The database is divided into volumes based on the basic character of the pictures. Images in each volume are of various sizes such as 256×256 pixels, 512×512 pixels, or 1024×1024 pixels. All images are either 8-bits/pixel for black and white images or 24-bits/pixel for color images.

The following volumes are currently available: Textures, Aerials, Miscellaneous and Sequences.
