The Tsinghua Palmprint Database

To encourage further research, we make the multi-impression subset of THUPALMLAB [1] publicly available here. This database contains 1,280 palmprint images from 80 subjects (two palms per person and eight impressions per palm) captured using a commercial palmprint scanner of Hisign. All the palmprint images are of 2040x2040 pixels and 500 ppi. The uni-impression subset of THUPALMLAB is not publicly available.
