Labeled Fiducial Points in Faces for Aging and Expression Study


Fiducial points are manually labeled in face images from two databases: Lifespan and FACES.

Our manually labeled fiducial points can be used for research purpose only, such as facial expression recognition with aging variations [1]. The face images in these two databases (see references in [1] for introduction of the two databases originally captured by psychology researchers) can also be used for age estimation across facial expression changes [2, 3]. 

Please cite the related papers from us if our labeled fiducial points are used in your research publications.

The files can be downloaded from here: Lifespan_Fiducials.rar, FACES_Fiducials.rar 

The fiducial points are stored in .mat files that can be viewed from Matlab.

The file is protected by a password. Please email me (guodong dot guo AT mail dot wvu dot edu) to request the passwords to uncompress the two files.
