The MVTec Anomaly Detection Dataset (MVTec AD)

MVTec AD is a dataset for benchmarking anomaly detection methods with a focus on industrial inspection. It contains over 5000 high-resolution images divided into fifteen different object and texture categories. Each category comprises a set of defect-free training images and a test set of images with various kinds of defects as well as images without defects.

Pixel-precise annotations of all anomalies are also provided. More information can be in our paper "MVTec AD – A Comprehensive Real-World Dataset for Unsupervised Anomaly Detection" and its extended version "The MVTec Anomaly Detection Dataset: A Comprehensive Real-World Dataset for Unsupervised Anomaly Detection".

Download the MVTec AD Dataset

For your convenience, we provide a download link for the whole dataset, as well as links for each object category.
For each object, the data consist of three folders:

  • 'train', which contains the (defect-free) training images
  • 'test', which contains the test images
  • 'ground_truth', which contains the pixel-precise annotations of anomalous regions

Download the whole dataset

Since the whole dataset is about 4.9 GB in size, we also provide links to download each object category separately:
