# DRIONS-DB Retinal Image Database¶

This package is part of the signal-processing and machine learning toolbox Bob. It provides an interface for the DRIONS-DB Dataset. This package does not contain the original data files, which need to be obtained through the link above.

The dataset contains 110 eye fundus images with a resolution of 600 x 400. Two sets of ground-truth optic disc annotations are available. The first set is commonly used for training and testing. The second set acts as a “human” baseline.

If you use this package, please cite the authors of the database:
