OpenSurfaces Documentation

OpenSurfaces is a large database of annotated surfaces created from real-world consumer photographs. Our annotation framework draws on crowdsourcing to segment surfaces from photos, and then annotate them with rich surface properties, including material, texture and contextual information.

Our code is hosted on GitHub: If you use our code, please cite our paper:
