Please submit requests for the dataset unless otherwise indicated:

Off axis/angle iris dataset contains images collected with two cameras, a Sony Cyber Shot DSC F717 and a black and white, monochrome camera. The angles are as accurate as the subject can hold their eye in position. The Sony camera was used in infrared mode, called night vision. However, while the camera was still in night vision mode, it still used all three RGB sensor data hence the green hue to the images.
