State of the art on the Market-1501 dataset

In this page, will summarize the state-of-the-art methods on Market-1501 dataset. We will report both mAP and rank-1, 5, 10, 20 accuracies. Note that this may not be the only performance measurement. Other metrics, such as recognition time, are also important.

When CMC curves are used in the respective paper, we roughly estimate the numbers and fill in the blanks. The authors may feel free to contact me with the accurate numbers. Priorities are given to papers whose codes are published. Should you have any inquery, please contact me at
