Data Release Protocol (broken link)

Please submit requests for the dataset unless otherwise indicated:

The synthetic irises are generated in two stages. In the first stage, a Markov Random Field model is used to generate a background texture representing the global iris appearance. In the next stage, a variety of iris features, viz., radial and concentric furrows, collaret and crypts, are generated and embedded in the texture field.

Dataset Size:
1000 classes with 7 samples per class.

Examples of iris images:
