We present LaSOT, a high-quality Large-scale Single Object Tracking benchmark. LaSOT contains a diverse selection of 85 object classes, and offers 1,550 totaling more than 3.87 million frames. The average video length is around 2,500 frames (i.e., around 83 seconds). Each frame in a sequence is carefully and manually annotated with a bounding box. This makes LaSOT, to our knowledge, the largest densely annotated tracking benchmark. Please consider citing our papers if you use LaSOT for your research.

We collected a multi-label dataset of 2078 image patches of nuclei. Image patches are extracted from TCGA glioma pathology whole slide images. Each image patch has 15 binary labels such as "Perinuclear Halos", "Gemistocyte", "Oval", etc. The train/val/test separation schemes are also included in this dataset. Please cite our paper:

We collected a dataset of 1785 histopathology image patches. Each patch has a binary label indicating whether the object in the center is a lymphocyte (or a plasma cell) or non-lymphocyte.

We collected about 700K images in 70K street segments from Google Street View for pavement condition assessment. The images are from NYC and the condition annotation is from NYC Open Data website.

We collected around 5 thousand images containing shadows from a wide variety of scenes and photo types. Annotations in the form of shadow binary masks are provided along with the actual images. The shadow label annotations for the 4K images in the training set are the result of applying our proposed label recovery method to reduce label noise. Whereas, the testing images were carefully annotated manually to produce precise shadow masks.

Eye movements and image descriptions were collected on 1,000 images from the PASCAL VOC dataset and 104 images from the SUN09 dataset (183.2MB). It also includes 20 object detectors for the PASCAL and 22 object detectors for the SUN09.

Eight types of two-person interactions were collected using the Microsoft Kinect sensor (3.3GB). We collect eight interactions: approaching, departing, pushing, kicking, punching, exchanging objects, hugging, and shaking hands from seven participants and 21 pairs of two-actor sets. Each frame contains color image, depth map, and 3-dimensional coordinates of 15 joints from each person.

90 images from the SUN09 Dataset. Object segmentations by human subjects for all 90 images are provided as part of SUN09. Clutter rankings done by 15 human subjects are provided (21.5MB).
