Printed Tamil Characters and Documents

This data set is used for the development of the OCR software for Tamil. In addition this data set is made available for research communities to test their work on developing a better OCR for Tamil. In this regard, two different data sets of printed Tamil characters and printed documents were constructed:

  1. Data set of printed Tamil characters – UJTDchar
  2. Scanned desktop published documents of 20 different font faces – UJTDdocF

Front-view Cars

Dataset Information:

  1. Images are of 25 distinct classes of front-view cars with 20 images per class with crucial variations such as scale, rotation, background, and lighting.
  2. Images are saved without any preprocessing and each image consists only one car.
  3. Each of the images is of size 800x600 pixels.
  4. All images within a class is numbered 1 to 20 where odd numbered images are of cars with different backgrounds, whereas even numbered images are with plain background.

Class Information:

Acura, Audi, Buick, Cadillac, Daihatsu, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Lada, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Nissan, Opel, Renault, Subaru, Suzuki, Tata, Toyota, Vauxhall, Volkswagen and Volvo.
