Wind crust formation: Microsoft Kinect data


This data sets contains the Microsoft Kinect data from 15 wind tunnel experiments on wind-packing / wind crust formation. These experiments were performed in the winter 2016/17. The Kinect measures distributed snow depth.

The Kinect data is organized per experiment. Each experiment subfolder contains the processed Kinect depth images and some additional files.

Please refer to the README for more details on the data. The processing scripts are available for download as well. The scripts are mainly provided as documentation and would need to be adjusted to be used.

This dataset is the basis of the following publication:
