User’s Guide

This package contains the access API and descriptions for the BANCA English Database. The actual raw data for the database should be downloaded from the original URL. This API is only compatible with the images from the BANCA English database.

This package only contains the Bob accessor methods to use the DB directly from python, with our certified protocols. The BANCA database interface provides several face verification protocols, i.e., 'P', 'G', 'Mc', 'Md', 'Ma', 'Ud', 'Ua'. These protocols are defined in detail in [Bail2003].
