This paper introduces SphereCraft, a dataset specifically designed for spherical keypoint detection, matching, and camera pose estimation. The dataset addresses the limitations of existing datasets by providing extracted keypoints from various detectors, along with their ground truth correspondences. Synthetic scenes with photo-realistic rendering and accurate 3D meshes are included, as well as real-world scenes acquired from different spherical cameras. SphereCraft enables the development and evaluation of algorithms targeting multiple camera viewpoints, advancing the state-of-the-art in computer vision tasks involving spherical images.
