|Abstract||We propose a novel representation of 3D face shape which is a key step for feature extraction and face recognition. The input of the proposed methods is unstructured point cloud, which determines the wide applicability of the proposed representation. Our contributions mainly include two parts: Spherical Depth Map (SDM) and face alignment based on SDM. SDM, which can be adopted to many applications, is a special kind of range image utilizing the prior anatomical knowledge of human face. Useful characteristics of SDM facilitate face alignment with higher efficiency and accuracy. Experiments conducted on three popular 3D face databases verify the high efficacy and superiority of the proposed method. The accuracy of face alignment is up to 100% with our strategy. The face verification rates based on the standard protocols are all higher than the baseline performance of FRGC2.0.|
