|Description (include details on usage, files and paper references)||This dataset provides a collection of web images and 3D models for research on landmark recognition (especially for methods based on 3D models). We hope it could serve as a useful benchmark for evaluating and comparing different methods.
Contents of the Dataset
Currently the dataset involves:
25 landmarks, each with a 3D model (point cloud) reconstructed using structure-from-motion (SfM);
45,180 database images (1.4K~2K per landmark) registered to the 3D models;
10,000 positive test images for evaluation (400 per landmark);
~2.7 million 3D points in the 3D models (29K~223K per landmark);
~58 million SIFT features registered to the 3D models.
The list of landmarks is provided in the file list_landmarks.txt in the root folder.

For each landmark, there is a subfolder containing four files:
list_db.txt -- the list of database images
list_test.txt -- the list of test images
model.nvm -- the 3D model reconstructed using VisualSFM
model.ply -- the 3D points in the 3D model (for visualization only)
