VADANA: Vims Appearance Dataset for facial image ANAlysis
Analysis of face images has been the topic of in-depth research with wide spread applications. Face recognition, verification, age progression studies are some of the topics under study. In order to facilitate comparison and benchmarking of different approaches, various datasets have been released. For the specific topics of face verification with age progression, aging pattern extraction and age estimation, only two public datasets are currently available. The FGNET and MORPH datasets contain a large number of subjects, but only a few images are available for each subject. We present a new dataset, VADANA, which complements them by providing a large number of high quality digital images for each subject within and across ages (depth vs. breadth). It provides the largest number of intra-personal pairs, essential for better training and testing. The images also offer a natural range of pose, expression and illumination variation. A parallel version with aligned faces is also created. Ad...
