Paper Texture ID Challenge
Texture images available for application development
texture images

This site provides access to texture images made from photographic paper. These image collections can be used to develop automated classification and sorting schemes as well as other related signal processing applications.

Each set of images is divided into four categories based on anticipated levels of similarity. The four similarity categories have three subsets of ten images each for a total of 120 images per set. The categories:

  1. Same sheet of paper (10 images X 3 papers)
  2. Same package of paper (10 images X 3 packages)
  3. Same manufacturing standards over short time intervals -- papers in this category share the same manufacturer and surface texture designation but were taken from different packages brought to market at different times (10 images X 3 manufacturer surfaces)
  4. Randomly selected papers, showing a fuller diversity of textures (30 images)
