The UMPM Benchmark Data

Data

Use of this part of the site is permitted only after having registered. This implies that you agree with the terms of use.

All data files are on archive server http://umpm-mirror.cs.uu.nl/download/ . You will need the username and password that were sent to you by email.

For every recording there are 4 video files and one file with other information. The video files are com pressed with xz. Those five files are packed together in a zip file (with no further compression). The list of zip file URLs is here. If you want to download all the files, you have two options: you can enter all the files in the urls.txt file or you can use a program like wget.

wget --http-user=... --http-passwd=... -i urls.txt

The wget program is rather standard on linux systems. On Windows, we had success with the gnuwin32 version. The only gotcha was that the PATH was not changed after installation, so wget would not be found. Using "\program files\gnuwin32\bin\wget" fixed that problem. If you are not familiar with the command line interface for windows, look up help for command prompt or cmd.

Terms of Use

Utrecht Multi-Person Motion Benchmark Release Agreement

In the following we will refer to the Utrecht Multi-Person Motion Benchmark
as UMPM benchmark.

The goal of the UMPM benchmark is to develop new techniques, technology,
and algorithms for the automatic articulated pose estimation and tracking
of humans.  Universiteit Utrecht has copyright on the data and is the
principal distributor of the UMPM benchmark.

Release of the dataset:
To advance the state-of-the-art in human motion estimation, the UMPM
benchmark is made available to the researcher community.  All other uses of
the UMPM benchmark will be considered on a case-by-case basis. To receive a
copy of the UMPM benchmark, the requestor must agree to observe the
restrictions listed below.

Consent:

The researcher(s) agrees to the following restrictions on the UMPM benchmark:
1. Redistribution: Without prior written approval from the Universiteit
Utrecht, the UMPM benchmark, in whole or in part, will not be further
distributed, published, copied, or disseminated in any way or form
whatsoever, whether for profit or not. This includes further distributing,
copying or disseminating to a different facility or organizational unit in
the requesting university, organization, or company.

2. Modification and Commercial Use: Without prior approval from the
Universiteit Utrecht, the UMPM benchmark, in whole or in part, may not be
modified or used for commercial purposes.

3. Publication Requirements: In no case should the still frames or video be
used in any way that could cause the original subject embarrassment or
mental anguish. Data of human subjects is provided in coded form (without
personal identifying information).  Subject consent permits publication
(paper or web-based) of the data (including image data) for scientific
purposes only.

4. Citation/Reference: All documents and papers that report on research
that uses the UMPM benchmark must acknowledge the use of the dataset by
including an appropriate citation to the following:

5. No Warranty: THE PROVIDER OF THE DATA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS AND
EXTENDS NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED.  THERE ARE
NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR THAT THE USE OF THE MATERIAL WILL NOT INFRINGE ANY
