This website provides a list of frequently used computer vision datasets. Wait, there is more!
There is also a description containing common problems, pitfalls and characteristics and now a searchable TAG cloud.
Plus, this is open for crowd editing (if you pass the ultimate turing test)! - Questions? yacvid [at] hayko [dot] at
