CASIA NIR-VIS 2.0 Face Database protocol
CASIA NIR-VIS 2.0 Face Database
This package contains the access API and descriptions for the CASIA NIR-VIS 2.0 database. The actual raw data for the database should be downloaded from the original URL. This package only contains the Bob accessor methods to use the DB directly from python, with the original protocol of the database.
CASIA NIR-VIS 2.0 database offers pairs of mugshot images and their correspondent NIR photos. Capured by CASIA (Chinese Academy of Sciences), the images of this database were collected in four recording sessions: 2007 spring, 2009 summer, 2009 fall and 2010 summer, in which the first session is identical to the HFB database. The CASIA NIR-VIS 2.0 database consists of 725 subjects in total. There are 1-22 VIS and 5-50 NIR face images per subject.
You would normally not install this package unless you are maintaining it. What you would do instead is to tie it in at the package you need to use it. There are a few ways to achieve this:
- You can add this package as a requirement at the setup.py for your own satellite package or to your Buildout .cfg file, if you prefer it that way. With this method, this package gets automatically downloaded and installed on your working environment, or
- You can manually download and install this package using commands like easy_install or pip.
The package is available in two different distribution formats:
You can mix and match points 1/2 above based on your requirements. Here are some examples:
Modify your setup.py and download from PyPI
That is the easiest. Edit your setup.py in your satellite package and add the following entry in the install_requires section (note: ... means whatever extra stuff you may have in-between, don’t put that on your script):
install_requires=[ ... "bob.db.cbsr_nir_vis_2", ],
Proceed normally with your boostrap/buildout steps and you should be all set. That means you can now import the bob.db.cbsr_nir_vis_2 namespace into your scripts.
Modify your buildout.cfg and download from git
You will need to add a dependence to mr.developer to be able to install from our git repositories. Your buildout.cfg file should contain the following lines:
[buildout] ... extensions = mr.developer auto-checkout = * eggs = bob.db.cbsr_nir_vis_2 [sources] bob.db.cbsr_nir_vis_2 = git https://gitlab.idiap.ch/biometric/bob.db.cbsr_nir_vis_2.git ...
