LSFM is the largest-scale 3D Morphable Model (3DMM) of facial shapes ever constructed, based on a dataset of around 10,000 distinct facial identities from a huge range of gender, age and ethnicity combinations.

This model has been built using an especially-designed, fully automated system that accurately establishes dense correspondences among 3D facial scans and is robust to the large shape variability exhibited in human faces. LSFM includes not only a global 3DMM model but also models tailored for specific age, gender or ethnicity groups. This was made possible thanks to the extremely rich demographic information that the used dataset has.

LSFM is built from two orders of magnitude more identity variation than current state-of-the-art models. Extensive experimental evaluations (Booth et al., CVPR’16) have shown that this additional training data leads to significant improvements in the characteristics of the statistical modelling of the 3D shape of human faces, and demonstrate that LSFM outperforms existing state-of-the-art models by a wide margin.

The LSFM model was built through a collaboration between the Craniofacial Department at Great Ormond Street Hospital and Imperial College London.

The code used to produce LSFM is open source and available at:


Please note that the requestor should be a SENIOR RESEARCHER (i.e. a Faculty member of an Academic or Research Institute, NOT a PhD student or a postdoctoral researcher). This is specified in the license agreement. Furthermore, the intended use of the LSFM has to demonstrate a MEDICALLY ORIENTED APPLICATION within all reports and papers in which the requestor will use the model.

Requests should be made using valid academic or research instution email addresses.
