The large database was filmed over successive days in the summer of 2001. Each subject was filmed from six different views, with two views (fronto-parallel and oblique) per scenario. Three scenarios existed - outside, inside track and inside treadmill.

All data is stored as a pre-cut digital video (DV) file contains at least one complete gait cycle, with a corresponding XML file of the same filename structure describing the dv file.

Please note: data is only currently available for cameras a,b,d and e.
