- Download Databases for research comparison:
10,000 test images (low resolution web-crawled misc database used in WBIIS);
1,000 test images (test database used in SIMPLIcity paper)(zip);
Due to growing demands and concerns of compliance to 'fair-use',
we can no longer provide the larger databases for research use. Sorry
The databases should be used only
for comparing algorithms, which can be considered as 'fair use' of
the images and our metadata.
You should not redistribute the images.
You should reference to

- Download SIMPLIcity Software Package:
If you are a government agency, an education institution, or
a non-profit organization, we may offer you a FREE license of
the SIMPLIcity system to run on LINUX or Solaris. Please contact
Prof. James Wang by email to discuss details. At the moment,
the C source code is not ready for public download. If you are
commercial and would like to use SIMPLIcity, let us know and we
will try to arrange to let you use.
To try SIMPLIcity on a real-world site with more than a million images and
many concurrent users, go to www.airliners.net.
