Denver Intensity of Spontaneous Facial Action (DISFA) Database is a non-posed facial expression database for those who are interested in developing computer algorithms for automatic action unit detection and their intensities described by FACS.
This database contains stereo videos of 27 adult subjects(12 females and 15 males) with different ethnicities. The images were acquired using PtGrey stereo imaging system at high resolution (1024×768). The intensity of AU’s (0-5 scale) for all video frames were manually scored by two human FACS experts. The database also includes 66 facial landmark points of each image in the database. More description about this database can be found in our paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing [pdf].
The database is available for distribution for research purposes. Please complete the agreement form and send it back to Dr.Mahoor.
DISFA is a spontaneos facial expression database which contains images of 27 adult subjects (12 females and 15 males). The facial images of each subject is acquired while watching an emotive video stimulus (four minutes long) and PtGrey stereo imaging system was utilized to record videos. In total each video contains 4845 frames acquired at 20 fps rate.
Two FACS coders labeled the existence and teh intensity of 12 Action Units frame by frame. The intensity values are from absent to maximal (0-5 scale). These action units are listed in Table 1.
The following figure illustrates three images of a subject in the database, coded AU’s mentioned in Table 1 as well as their intensities [AU#(intensity value)].
