|Description: ||The fighter aeroplane shape database included Mirage,
Eurofighter, F-14, Harrier, F-22 and F-15. Since F-14 has
two possible shapes, one when its wings are closed and another when its wings are opened, total number of shape
classes are seven. Each class includes 30 shape samples.
Shape database was created by taking digital pictures of diecast replica models of these aeroplanes from top. Pictures
were captured at 640 by 480 resolution, and were segmented
using Spedge and Medge  color image segmentation algorithm. Contours of the segmented planes were used for
training and testing of the classifier.
