ICALAB for Image Processing - benchmarks

The directory BENCHMARKS consists of a collection of color and grayscale images with various resolutions.

The images are saved individually and all collected in one MATLAB file NAME.mat in order to save time during loading.

You can download all benchmarks in matlab format (*mat), files tared and gzipped to one big file: benchmarks_2d.tgz (4.42MB).

The most interesting benchmarks are briefly described below.

Two-dimensional sine waves

sin2d

This color and grayscale benchmark contains 12 two-dimensional sine wave sources as illustrated in Fig. 1B.

FWRsin2d

These color and grayscale benchmarks are similar to the sin2d benchmarks, but the 2-D sinewaves are full wave rectified (see Fig. 4B).

HWRsin2d

These color and grayscale benchmarks are similar to the benchmarks sin2d, but the two-dimensional sine waves are half-wave rectified so the images become more sparsely distributed (see Fig. 5B).

Sparse images

The benchmarks edges1d, edges1ds and edges2d consist of grayscale level "sparse" images representing regular edges. Please try any HOS ICA algorithm like SANG, JADE or FICA to extract such images from their mixtures.
