We collected 6604 images of 30 models in eight types of facial expression: happiness, anger, sadness, disgust, fear,
surprise, contempt and neutral. Among them, 406 most representative images from 12 models were rated by more than
200 human raters for perceived emotion category and intensity. Such large number of emotion categories, models and
raters is sufficient for most serious expression recognition research both in psychology and in computer science. All the
models and raters are of Asian background. Hence, this database can also be used when the culture background is a
concern. In addition, 43 landmarks each of the 291 rated frontal view images were identified and recorded. This
information should facilitate feature based research of facial expression. Overall, the diversity in images and richness in
information should make our database and norm useful for a wide range of research.
