DESCRIPTION OF TunnelDBSoftBio

The database is comprised of 13,340 soft biometric signals (from 23 physical trait labels) from 58 users annotated by 10 different annotators, as described in [TIFS2013].


    FILES FORMAT

The physical trait labels are stored in .mat (MATLAB) file. After loading each file, soft biometric signals corresponding to the 23 physical trait labels are stored respectively in one matrix (TunnelDBSoftBio) of dimensions 26 by 580, i.e., 3 rows of identificators and 23 rows of physical trait labels by 10 annotators from 58 subjects. Each column in the matrix represents a soft biometric signature from the 58 subjects.

As described in [TIFS2013] and [TPAMI2013], the database was annotated against recordings taken of the individuals in laboratory conditions. The annotation process was as follows: an annotator visualized the full video of a subject walking toward the camera and then generated one set of soft labels per each video. It is important to note that the process followed here is independent of the distance. A range of discrete values is given to each trait label, e.g. Arm length marked as 1 (very short), 2 (short), 3 (average), 4 (long), and 5 (very long).

    INDEX FILES

The nomenclature followed to identify the physical soft biometric label is as follows:

  • ROW 1 = sss: subject identifier

  • ROW 2 = xxxx: sample identifier

  • ROW 3 = aaa: annotator identifier

  • ROW 4...26 = soft labels based on the right table

    • ROW 4 = arm length [1...5]

    • ROW 5 = arm thickness [1...5]

    • ROW 6 = chest [1...5]

    • ROW 7 = figure [1...5]

    • ROW 8 = height [1...5]

    • ROW 9 = hips [1...5]

    • ROW 10 = leg length [1...5]

    • ROW 11 = leg direction [1...5]

    • ROW 12 = leg thickness [1...5]

    • ROW 13 = muscle build [1...5]

    • ROW 14 = proportions [1...2]

    • ROW 15 = shoulder shape [1...5]

    • ROW 16 = weight [1...5]

    • ROW 17 = age [1...7]

    • ROW 18 = ethnicity [1...7]

    • ROW 19 = sex [1...2]

    • ROW 20 = skin colour [1...4]

    • ROW 21 = facial hair colour [1...6]

    • ROW 22 = facial hair length [1...5]

    • ROW 23 = hair colour [1...6]

    • ROW 24 = hair length [1...5]

    • ROW 25 = neck length [1...5]

    • ROW 26 = neck thickness [1...5]
