Helen Dataset for Facial Landmark Localization



This page contains the Helen dataset used in the experiments of exemplar-based graph matching (EGM)[1] for facial landmark detection. The original Helen dataset[2] adopts a highly detailed annotation. We re-labeled 348 images with the same 29 landmarks as the LFPW dataset[3]. In addition, we provide MATLAB interface code for loading and visualizing the facial landmarks on images.
