MUN104: Plantar pressure distribution template computed from 104 individuals from Munster University, Germany.


These are the MUN104 left- and right- plantar pressure distribution templates, computed from 104 subjects at the University of Münster, Germany.

Recommended uses: as a datum for comparisons with individuals and/or other populations.

Loading and viewing the data (MATLAB)

file_name = 'MUN104L.h5'; 
I = hdf5read(file_name, '/I'); 
I = double( I' ); 
h = pcolor(I); 
set(h, 'facecolor','flat', 'edgecolor','none') 
axis image

Loading and viewing the data (Python)

import tables 
from matplotlib import pyplot 
file_name = 'MUN104L.h5' 
file_id = tables.openFile(file_name, mode='r') 
I = file_id.getNode('/I').read() 
pyplot.imshow(I, origin='lower', interpolation='nearest')

Data format

HDF5 is an open data format, excellent for the fast reading-and-writing of large datasets. Please find more information at: (for Matlab, Python, C, etc.)
