The 'Dresden Image Database'

Acknowledgements

Thomas Gloe gratefully acknowledge the staff members of the faculty of computer science, the staff members of the AVMZ (TU Dresden), and the following companies (in alphabetical order) for borrowing digital cameras: AgfaPhoto & Plawa, Casio, FujiFilm, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Praktica, Ricoh, Rollei, Samsung and Sony.

Special thanks go to the administration of Palaces and Gardens Dresden and to the administration of the Sculpture Collection Dresden for granting photography permissions for some very beautiful positions.

We are indebted to all colleagues and friends supporting the creation of the underlying image database actively during some of the probably coldest days of the year 2009.
