Overview

The Face Detection Data Set and Benchmark (FDDB) is a data set of face regions designed for studying the problem of unconstrained face detection. This data set contains the annotations for 5171 faces in a set of 2845 images taken from the Faces in the Wild data set.

Face annotations

Uncompressing the "FDDB-folds.tgz" file creates a directory "FDDB-folds", which contains files with names: FDDB-fold-xx.txt and FDDB-fold-xx-ellipseList.txt, where xx = {01, 02, ..., 10} represents the fold-index. Each line in the FDDB-fold-xx.txt file specifies a path to an image in the above-mentioned data set. For instance, the entry 2002/07/19/big/img_130 corresponds to originalPics/2002/07/19/big/img_130.jpg.

The corresponding annotations are included in the file "FDDB-fold-xx-ellipseList.txt" in the following format:

<image name i>
<number of faces in this image =im>
<face i1>
<face i2>
...
<face im>

Here, each face is denoted by: <major_axis_radius minor_axis_radius angle center_x center_y 1>.

Detection output

To be recognized by the evaluation code, the detection output is expected in the following format:

<image name i>
<number of faces in this image =im>
<face i1>
<face i2>
...
<face im>

where the representation of a face depends on the specifics of the shape of the hypothesized image region. The evaluation code supports the following shapes:

  • Rectangular regions Each face region is represented as: <left_x top_y width height detection_score>

  • Elliptical regions Each face region is represented as: <major_axis_radius minor_axis_radius angle center_x center_y detection_score>.

Also, the order of images in the output file is expected to be the same as the order in the file annotatedList.txt.

The Computer Vision Laboratory was established in the Computer Science Department at the University of Massachusetts in 1974 with the goal of investigating the scientific principles underlying the construction of integrated vision systems and the application of vision to problems of real-world importance. The emphasis of our work is on vision systems that are capable of functioning flexibly and robustly in complex changing environments.
