The baseline corpus of BioGiga consists of synthetic images at 94 GHz of the body of 50 individuals. The images are the result of simulations carried out on 3D-corporal models at two types of scenarios (outdoors, indoors) and with two kinds of imaging systems (passive and active). These corporal models were previously generated based on body measures taken from real subjects.

The database is gender balanced, consisting of 25 females and 25 males, with ages between 15 and 55 years old. For each user the database has four sets of images.

  • Passive imaging and Outdoors scenario

  • Passive imaging and Indoors scenario

  • Active imaging and Outdoors scenario

  • Active imaging and Indoors scenario

For each user and each of the previous sets the following data was generated

  • Images of the human 3D model with clothes and an angle formed by the camera of -10, 0 and +10 degrees.

  • Images of the human 3D model without clothes and an angle formed by the camera of -10, 0 and +10 degrees.

According to what is stated above, for each user the database has 4 sets x 2 clothes variation x 3 angles = 24 images at 94 GHz. Hence, the total number of images in BioGiga is 50 x 24 = 1200). Fig. 1 shows the 6 different images per user and set
