SYSU-Shapes dataset is a new shape database including elaborately annotated shape contours. Compared with the existing shape databases, this database includes more realistic challenges in shape detection and localization, e.g., cluttered backgrounds, large intraclass variations, and different poses/views, in which part of the instances were originally used for appearance-based object detection.
There are 5 categories, i.e. airplanes, boats, cars, motorbikes, and bicycles, and each category contains 200~500 images. The shape contours are carefully labeled by a professional team using the LabelMe toolkit. It is worth mentioning that each image has at least but not limit to one object of a given category.
Root directory contains following files and folders: - README.md this file - samples.jpg some typical visualized examples of the SYSU-Shapes dataset - show_annotation.m visualization code to demonstrate the use of the dataset - airplane follows are five categories - bicycle - boat - car - motorbike Each category contains three folders - annotations annotation file (.mat) - contours contours extracted by pb contour detector - images original image files
Please refer to show_annotation.m for detailed usage of the SYSU-Shapes dataset.
