(This is the appropriate archival reference to this data).

Questions, comments, and problems with this data should be directed to Kobus Barnard.

8-bit TIFF images: mondrian_8_bit.tar.gz (72.4 MB)
(Recomended for most applications)

16-bit TIFF images: mondrian_16_bit.tar.gz (342.2 MB)
(The 16 bit images have only a small amount of extra data beyond the 8 bit images--the true dynamic range of the images is 9-10 bits).

This data was collected by Lindsay Martin, Kobus Barnard, and Adam Coath under the guidance of Kobus Barnard in Brian Funt's Computational Colour Vision Laboratory.
