BTFDBB: BTF Datenbank Bonn und Messlabor
Here you can download the 3D geometry as triangle meshes and corresponding appearance as compressed BTF files for a number of objects that have been captured using the Dome setups of our department.
All datasets are free to use, modify and re-distribute for research and scholarship purposes. Furthermore, it is allowed to publish images made using the models or the BTF data in a scholary article or book, as long as proper credit is given to the University of Bonn's BTF Database. Some of the datasets (Ganesh, Ivory Figurine, Santa) represent artifacts with religious or cultural significance and improper use might affront certain groups of people. Please respect this fact and try to avoid potentially offending usage.
Any usage of the datasets for commercial purposes is not allowed without our permission and in some cases the permission of third parties.
The data presented here has been captured and processed using the methods described in
Christopher Schwartz, Michael Weinmann, Roland Ruiters and Reinhard Klein "Integrated High-Quality Acquisition of Geometry and Appearance for Cultural Heritage", VAST 2011.
Please acknowledge or cite this work when using the datasets.
In case you are using the food objects you may instead also refer to
Christopher Schwartz, Michael Weinmann, Roland Ruiters, Arno Zinke, Ralf Sarlette and Reinhard Klein "Capturing Shape and Reflectance of Food", SIGGRAPH Asia 2011 Sketches
You can find four more captured objects that in addition to the processed BTF and geometry include the measured raw image data and HDR combined input data in the OBJECTS2011 dataset section.
you can access the data either using your webbrowser and download directly from this page or use our anonymous FTP server:
Some users encountered problems using certain browsers with the provided FTP links. A native FTP client using active-mode will work in these cases.
The MOULAGE dataset is acquired from a wax moulage of a hand showing the desease "Psoriasis". The original object is part of the medical moulage collection of the Department of Dermatology of the University Bonn
The MOULAGE2 dataset is acquired from a wax moulage of a nose showing "epithelioma". The original object is part of the medical moulage collection of the Department of Dermatology of the University Bonn
