This is the largest database of hyperspectral face images containing hyperspectral image cubes of 78 subjects imaged in multiple sessions. The data was captured with the CRI's VariSpec LCTF (Liquid Crystal Tunable Filter) integrated with a Photon Focus machine vision camera. There are 33 spectral bands comering the 400 - 720nm range with a 10nm step. The noise level in the dataset is relatively lower because we adapted the camera exposure time to the transmittance of the filter illumination intensity as well as CCD sensitivity in each band. Head position is not strictly fixed during imaging and slight head movements were unavoidable between individual bands.
