JHMDB (Joint-annotated Human Motion Data Base)

Introduced by Hueihan Jhuang et al. in Towards Understanding Action Recognition

JHMDB is an action recognition dataset that consists of 960 video sequences belonging to 21 actions. It is a subset of the larger HMDB51 dataset collected from digitized movies and YouTube videos. The dataset contains video and annotation for puppet flow per frame (approximated optimal flow on the person), puppet mask per frame, joint positions per frame, action label per clip and meta label per clip (camera motion, visible body parts, camera viewpoint, number of people, video quality).
