Description page: This dataset consisted of crossly-cropped images of 68 object categories that were distributed across three levels of a category hierarchy. There were 48 subordinate-level categories, which were grouped into 16 basic-level categories, which were grouped into 4 superordinate-level categories. A categorical search task was used, and the participants were 26 Stony Brook University undergraduates.
