VISGRAF faces database.

The database IMPA-FACE3D was created in 2008 to assist in the research of facial animation. In particular, for analysis and synthesis of faces and expressions. For this purpose, we take as basis the neutral face (i.e. face with the front camera position -0 degrees and without facial expression) and the six universal expressions between human races proposed by Ekman: happiness, sadness, surprise, anger, disgust and fear . The main feature of this dataset is a record of the geometric information with color (i.e., the geometry and texture are correlated).

This dataset includes acquisitions of 38 individuals with a neutral face sample, samples corresponding to six universal facial expressions and other expressions referring to 5 samples containing mouth and eyes open and / or closed. Also two samples were considered corresponding to the lateral profiles of individuals. Altogether, the data set is composed of 22 men and 16 women, with the majority of individuals are aged between 20 and 50 years. 14 samples were acquired for all individuals, summarizing 532 samples in total.
