The GigaMVS dataset is composed of 13 ultra-large-scale scenes , with a maximum area of 32007 m2 and an average area of 8667 m2. For each scene, a large number of gigapixel-level images are available, with both wide field-of-view and high spatial resolution. Regarding the evaluation, the dataset provides precisely labelled camera poses , as well as densely laser-scanned ground-truth 3D models, where the noisy point clouds and the transient objects are either carefully polished or eliminated by post-processing. Please refer to our paper on IEEE Xplore for detailed information of pictures and laser-scanned point clouds.

Annotation Description

File structure

The directory of the benchmark data includes 13 zip files, which correspond to the 13 ultra-large-scale scenes:







Scene Zip Files

Each sceneX.zip compressed package containing images, corresponding calibrated camera parameters and target poses (for novel view synthesis) of one scene. The directory is as follows:


Parameter Files

The camera files are organized in the same way as MVSNet. The camera parameter of one image is stored in a cam.txt file. The text file contains the camera extrinsic E = [R|t], intrinsic K and the depth range:

E00 E01 E02 E03
E10 E11 E12 E13
E20 E21 E22 E23
E30 E31 E32 E33

K00 K01 K02
K10 K11 K12
K20 K21 K22
