Texture Datasets for Computer Vision Projects

Describable Textures Dataset


The Describable Textures Dataset (DTD) is a texture database, consisting of 5640 images, organized according to a list of 47 terms (categories) inspired from human perception. There are 120 images for each category. Image sizes range between 300×300 and 640×640, and the images contain at least 90% of the surface representing the category attribute. The images were collected from Google and Flickr by entering our proposed attributes and related terms as search queries. The images were annotated using Amazon Mechanical Turk in several iterations. For each image we provide key attribute (main category) and a list of joint attributes.
