The Biometric and Forensic Research Database Catalog, developed by NIST in collaboration with National Institute of Justice (NIJ), is a compendium of publicly available biometric datasets, and is still under development.
A symposium to discuss the results of this data collection effort and future database needs in the biometric community took place on January 26-27, 2015 at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD. Information on the event will be available at: https://www.nist.gov/forensics/conferences_and_events.cfm.
The site is currently under construction and dataset information is populated weekly. If you have any questions, feedback, or suggestions, please email us at: BDBC@nist.gov.
