The Laval Outdoor HDR Dataset
Full-HDR high resolution outdoor panoramas
This dataset contains 205 high resolution outdoor panoramas, captured using a Canon 5D Mark III and a robotic panoramic tripod head. Each capture was multi-exposed (22 f-stops) and is fully HDR, without any saturation. Panoramas were stitched from 6 captures (60 degrees azimuth increment) and were captured in a wide variety of outdoor environments.
