Does anybody have a copy of PETS 2006 Benchmark Data (or maybe you know, where can it be downloaded from)? Can you please share it? Their hosting seems to be down (both http and ftp. maybe, just this dataset not available anymore).

Dead links to the Dataset: http://www.cvg.reading.ac.uk/PETS2006/data.html ftp://ftp.cs.rdg.ac.uk/pub/PETS2006/

Update: Shared the database, will keep it available as of now: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1F3xAgdcmCZNEWpJY_HQkWcQneWvMg7xo

  • the given sites are all unreachable at the moment... does someone still have a copy ? Apr 26, 2018 at 8:30

    Uploaded, will keep the Dataset available for a couple of weeks, at least: drive.google.com/drive/folders/… It would be nice to find a suitable place to upload the Dataset there.

  • @Aram maybe this is a good case for a torrent, because the files are 100% static

  • Maybe, but it may end up relying on 1 or 2 seeders...

    It is still available through the gdrive link I've posted. I'm not going to delete it as for now

These sites are working for me:



Not working:


So you'd have to replace the links in the documentation page with one of the two working sites above, or just manually download the specific files.

From the documentation page:

The scenarios can also be downloaded from ftp://ftp.cs.rdg.ac.uk/pub/PETS2006/ (use anonymous login). Warning: ftp://ftp.pets.rdg.ac.uk is not listing files correctly on some ftp clients. If you experience problems you can connect to the http server at http://ftp.cs.rdg.ac.uk/PETS2006/.

  • Thanks a lot. ftp.cs.rdg.ac.uk/pub/PETS2006 works. Don't know why, but both of the ftp links you've mentioned don't work over FileZilla ftp client.

  • Duh. I meant http: //ftp.cs.rdg.ac.uk/pub/PETS2006 works.

  • If the FTP link works with the browser/explorer but not Filezilla, it could be a proxy problem. Anyway, for a couple zipped files, using the browser is easy enough.
