Full Gibson Environment Dataset

Full Gibson Environment Dataset consists of 572 models and 1440 floors. We cover a diverse set of models including households, offices, hotels, venues, museums, hospitals, construction sites, etc. A diverse set of visualization of all spaces in Gibson can be seen here.

Dataset Metadata

Each space in the database has some metadata with the following attributes associated with it. The metadata is available in this JSON file.

id                      # the name of the space, e.g. ""Albertville""
area                    # total metric area of the building, e.g. "266.125" sq. meters
floor                   # number of floors in the space, e.g. "4"
navigation_complexity   # navigation complexity metric, e.g. "3.737" (see the paper for definition)
room                    # number of rooms, e.g. "16"
ssa                     # Specific Surface Area (A measure of clutter), e.g. "1.297" (see the paper for definition)
split_full              # if the space is in train/val/test/none split of Full partition 
split_full+             # if the space is in train/val/test/none split of Full+ partition 
split_medium            # if the space is in train/val/test/none split of Medium partition 
split_tiny              # if the space is in train/val/test/none split of Tiny partition 

Dataset Modalities

Each space in the database has its own folder. All the modalities and metadata for each space are contained in that folder.

  /points                 # camera metadata
  /rgb                    # rgb images
  /mist                   # depth images
mesh.obj                  # 3d mesh
mesh_z_up.obj             # 3d mesh for physics engine
camera_poses.csv          # camera locations
semantic.obj (optional)   # 3d mesh with semantic annotation

Dataset Splits

Due to the sheer size of the database, We provide four different standard partitions which are subsets of the full Gibson database of 572 models. We recommend starting with tiny partition and progressively adding more models if you wish. Each partition is divided into training/validation/testing splits. You can download the standard split files here.

Split Name Train Val Test Hole Filled Total Size
Tiny 25 5 5 100% 8 GiB
Medium 100 20 20 100% 21 GiB
Full 360 70 70 100% 65 GiB
Full+ 412 80 80 90.9% 89 GiB

Hole Filling: We applied combination of automatic and manual hole-filling techniques on tiny, medium and full sets, to ensure that the models do not have severe reconstruction artifacts. full+ contains the rest of the models that we are incapable of hole-filling, based on current techniques.
Split Criteria: In every split, we sort all 572 models by the linear combination of loor number, area, ssa and navigation complexity. We select a tiny as the set of models with the highest combination scores. We also set medium to be inclusive of tiny, and full to be inclusive of mediuim.

Navigation Benchmark Scenarios

We provide standard point-to-point navigation episodes in Gibson Standard Navigation Benchmark. See the figure below for visualization of a sample episode. Each space includes 100 episodes along with their ground truth near-optimal path and waypoints. You can see random standard episodes visualized for each space in the database webpage. See this paper for a discussion on the navigation episodes and their application. The following column values are provided for each episode:

  • split: train, val, or test indicating split for the episode.
  • task: string id for task type, currently restricted to p for point_goal.
  • sceneId: id of model within which episode takes place.
  • level: integer id of level (typically floor) within scene, starting from 0.
  • startX, startY, startZ: coordinates of agent starting position in scene space.
  • startAngle, : azimuth angle (counter-clockwise from scene space +X axis) of agent starting state.
  • goalRoomId, goalRoomType: currently not available.
  • goalObjectId, goalObjectType: currently not available.
  • goalX, goalY, goalZ: coordinates of goal point in scene space. Required for all task types. Position of goal for point_goal.
  • dist, pathDist: Euclidean and geodesic (along shortest path) distance from agent start position to goal position
  • pathNumDoors, pathDoorIds: currently not available.
  • pathNumRooms, pathRoomIndices: currently not available.

Dataset Metrics

Floor Number Total number of floors in each model.

We calculate floor numbers using distinctive camera locations. We use sklearn.cluster.DBSCAN to cluster these locations by height and set minimum cluster size to 5. This means areas with at least 5 sweeps are treated as one single floor. This helps us capture small building spaces such as backyard, attics, basements.

Area Total floor area of each model.

We calculate total floor area by summing up area of each floor. This is done by sampling point cloud locations based on floor height, and fitting a scipy.spatial.ConvexHull on sample locations.

SSA Specific surface area.

The ratio of inner mesh surface and volume of convex hull of the mesh. This is a measure of clutter in the models: if the inner space is placed with large number of furnitures, objects, etc, the model will have high SSA.

Navigation Complexity The highest complexity of navigating between arbitrary points within the model.

We sample arbitrary point pairs inside the model, and calculate A∗ navigation distance between them. Navigation Complexity is equal to A* distance divide by straight line distance between the two points. We compute the highest navigation complexity for every model. Note that all point pairs are sample within the same floor.

Subjective Attributes

We examine each model manually, and note the subjective attributes of them. This includes their furnishing style, house shapes, whether they have long stairs, etc.

Navigation Waypoints

For every navigation scenario, we provide navigation waypoints as an optional choice to assist users with training navigation agents. The waypoints of each model is stored as a json file named with the id of that model.


We provide code for visualizing waypoints. In order to use it, you need to install the latest Blender.

## Make sure that you can start blender in terminal

## Configure your blender python path
echo `python -c "import sys; print(':'.join(x for x in sys.path if x))"` > path.txt

### Running visualization
blender -b --python --filepath path_to_scenario_json_dir \
                                      --datapath path_to_dataset_root_dir \
                                      --renderpath . \
                                      --model  Allensville \
                                      --idx 1 \
