Colour - Datasets
It is open source and freely available under the New BSD License terms.
Table of Contents
Colour - Datasets was created to overcome issues encountered frequently when trying to access or use colour science datasets:
- No straightforward ingestion path for dataset content.
- No simple loading mechanism for dataset content.
- Unavailability of the dataset, e.g. download url is down, dataset content is passed directly from hand to hand.
- No information regarding the definitive origination of the dataset.
Colour - Datasets offers all the above: it allows users to ingest and load colour science datasets with a single function call. The datasets information is hosted on Zenodo where the record for a dataset typically contain:
- An urls.txt file describing the urls to source the dataset files from.
- A copy of those files in the eventuality where the source files are not available or the content has changed without notice.
- Information about the authors, content and licensing.
When no explicit licensing information is available, the dataset adopts the Other (Not Open) licensing scheme, implying that assessing usage conditions is at the sole discretion of the users.
Colour - Datasets can be used online with Google Colab.
