Learning Attraction Field Reprensentation for Robust Line Segment Detection (accepted by CVPR 2019)

This is the offical implementation for our CVPR paper.


We reformulate the problem of line segment detection (LSD) as a coupled region coloring problem. Based on this new formulation, we can address the problem of LSD with convolutional neural networks.

1.Data preparation

1.1 Downloading data

Please follow the above links to download Wireframe and YorkUrban datasets. For Wireframe dataset, we only need the file named which contains images and line segment annotations for training and testing.

Once the files are downloaded, please unzip them into <AFM_root>/data/wireframe_raw and <AFM_root>/data/york_raw respectively. The structures of wireframe_raw and york_raw folder are as follows:

    - pointlines/*.pkl
    - train.txt
    - test.txt

    - filename0_rgb.png
    - filename0.mat
    - filename{N}_rgb.png
    - filename{N}.mat

1.2. Data Pre-processing

Please run the following commands

cd <AFM_root>/data/

2. Hyper-parameter configurations

We use the YACS to control the hyper parameters. Our configuration files for U-Net (afm_unet.yaml) and a-trous Residual Unet (afm_atrous.yaml) are saved in the "<AFM_root>/experiments" folder.

In each yaml file, the SAVE_DIR is used to store the network weights and experimental results. The weights are saved in SAVE_DIR/weights and the results are saved in SAVE_DIR/results/DATASET_name.

The TEST configuration is for outputing results in testing phase with different ways (e.g. save or display). We currently provide two output modes "display" and "save". You can custom more output methods in modeling/output/

3. Inference with pretrained models

The pretrained models for U-Net and atrous Residual U-Net can be downloaded from this link. Please place the weights into "<AFM_root>/experiments/unet/weight" and "<AFM_root>/experiments/atrous/weight" respectively.

  • For testing, please run the following command
python --config-file experiments/afm_atrous.yaml --gpu 0

4. Training

Please run the following command

python --config-file experiments/afm_atrous.yaml --gpu 0

to train a network. To speedup training procedure, our code will save the generated attraction field maps into <AFM_root>/data/wireframe/.cache when you run training code in the first time.
