PSU Near-Regular Texture Database 
This database is currently managed by Seungkyu Lee at PSU. Please contact Yanxi Liu if you have any concerns about the database. This research is supported in part by an NSF grant IIS-0099597.

This is the Near-regular Texture Database. It covers the spectrum of textures from completely regular to near-regular to irregular. It also includes video of near-regular textures in motion.

Our database also contains, or will include, test image sets with groundtruth for translation, rotation, reflection/glide-reflection symmetry detection algorithms.






The textures in this database may be freely used for non-commercial purposes such as research. If you use our textures in a publication please attribute them to the CMU NRT database.

If you wish to download the NRT images, they are available below.
