|Description (include details on usage, files and paper references)||The Architectural Style Facade dataset is a 25-class dataset used for architectural style classification and regression.

The ten styles used in our first experiments are: (randomly 30 images used for training and 10-fold cross validation)
* American craftsman style
* Baroque architecture
* Chicago school architecture
* Colonial architecture
* Georgian architecture
* Gothic architecture
* Greek Revival architecture
* Queen Anne architecture
* Romanesque architecture
* Russian Revival architecture
For a better evaluation of inter-class relationships between architectural styles, we are further collecting a larger number of styles (for now 66 styles), and tries to manage more metadata such as the name and place of the buildings. Please keep in track if you are interested in the task.
This dataset contains approximately 5000 images from 25 architectural styles. The raw images are downloaded from Wikimedia Commons with the first 5000 images from each style. We manually filtered the images to exclude images of interior decoration, building parts, or severe scale and orientation change, and resulted in a total of 5000 images.
For reference, the time period and style relationships between styles checked with Wikipedia are provided in the txt files.
Some of the images are collected from the 4-class dataset, reported in the paper:
