FAUST contains 300 real, high-resolution human scans of 10 different subjects in 30 different poses, with automatically computed ground-truth correspondences.

Each scan is a high-resolution, triangulated, non-watertight mesh acquired with a 3D multi-stereo system.

FAUST is subdivided into a training and a test set. The training set includes 100 scans (10 per subject) with their corresponding ground-truth alignments. The test set includes 200 scans. The FAUST benchmark defines 100 preselected scan pairs, partitioned into two classes - 60 requiring intra-subject matching, 40 requiring inter-subject matching.
