2020.05.01 - Initial dataset release
2021.08.11 - Cleaned annotations, preprocessing new MCTF problems, more MCTF models, multi-target MCTF preprocessing. Updated annotations are avaiable upon dataset request, and new code is available in the our new repositry, [Trajectory Tensors].
If you are interested in downloading the WNMF dataset, please download a copy of our [Release Agreement]. After reading the terms, fill in the information and send the completed agreement to the email address shown in the document. We will then send you the link and password to access the dataset.
The data download contains the following:
Videos are paired into entrances and departures. A departure is defined as the 4 seconds before tracking infromation is lost (and the person is therefore assumed to have left the camera view. An entrance is the next camera of re-apperance for this individual. Entrance video clips last for 12 seconds, starting from the moment the individual departed from the other camera view. Each video is processed using [RetinaFace] using an open-source [Pytorch implementation] to mask faces.
Bouding boxes are obtained using an [open-source implementation] of [Mask-RCNN], pre-trained on [MS-COCO]. Individuals are then tracked using an [open-source implementation] of the [DeepSORT] tracking algorithm.
Entrances and departures
Each track is labelled as as entrance (first frame of the track) or departure (last frame of the track)
Cross-camera matches are found using the labelling procedure described in our paper.
Pre-trained weights for each model in our paper.
The camera topology is shown in the figure below.
