The Computer Graphics Laboratory at
Stanford University has acquired several
light fields for research in computer graphics and vision. We are making this
data publicly available to researchers. The light fields may be used for
academic and research purposes, but are not to be used for commercial purposes,
nor should they appear in a product for sale without our permission. If you use
these models in a publication, please credit the Stanford Computer Graphics
Click on the Light Fields link above to access the
datasets. Each light field is available as a compressed archive of images in
PNG format. We provide the original camera images as well as keystone
corrected images. For some scenes, calibration information (such as
homographies for keystone correction and camera positions) is provided as a
text file; for others, simple calibration targets are visible in the original
camera images. Click the Calibration link for more
Acquisition These light fields were acquired using the Stanford Multi-Camera Array, the light field gantry, a simple Lego Mindstorms gantry you could build at
home, and the light field microscope..
Click the Acquisition link for more details.
Next to each light field in the archive is a link that lets you view the light
field, including flying around it and creating synthetically focused views from
it, using a Flash-based viewer that runs in your browser. You shouldn't need
to download any software to use this viewer, but you're welcome to look at
the source code for this viewer.

We welcome feedback and comments about our light fields. Please email your feedback to:
While we cannot offer continuous support, we will
do our best to answer questions.
