About this project

This database contains fixed-camera recordings of moving objects filmed primarily outdoors in the Chicagoland area, or through a dissecting microscope. Each clip contains uncompressed data at 60 - 200 frames per second. Metadata describe the filming location, subject, lens used, individual frame recording times, and frame rate, as well as other useful filming information.

These data are intended for use in visual neuroscience experiments, as training data for machine vision applications, or for human perception experiments. The filming locations were curated by the Palmer Group at the University of Chicago in Chicago, IL, to find epochs of constant and in many cases full-frame motion of animals, plants, and water. Videos in the initial release were collected between 2011 and 2015.
