High-resolution networks (HRNets) for Image classification


  • [2020/03/13] Our paper is accepted by TPAMI: Deep High-Resolution Representation Learning for Visual Recognition.

  • Per request, we provide two small HRNet models. #parameters and GFLOPs are similar to ResNet18. The segmentation resutls using the two small models are also available at

  • TensoFlow implemenation available at Thanks VictorLi!

  • ONNX export enabled after fixing issues. Thanks Baowen Bao!


This is the official code of high-resolution representations for ImageNet classification. We augment the HRNet with a classification head shown in the figure below. First, the four-resolution feature maps are fed into a bottleneck and the number of output channels are increased to 128, 256, 512, and 1024, respectively. Then, we downsample the high-resolution representations by a 2-strided 3x3 convolution outputting 256 channels and add them to the representations of the second-high-resolution representations. This process is repeated two times to get 1024 channels over the small resolution. Last, we transform 1024 channels to 2048 channels through a 1x1 convolution, followed by a global average pooling operation. The output 2048-dimensional representation is fed into the classifier.

Quick start


  1. Install PyTorch=0.4.1 following the official instructions
  2. git clone
  3. Install dependencies: pip install -r requirements.txt

Data preparation

You can follow the Pytorch implementation:

The data should be under ./data/imagenet/images/.

Train and test

Please specify the configuration file.

For example, train the HRNet-W18 on ImageNet with a batch size of 128 on 4 GPUs:

python tools/ --cfg experiments/cls_hrnet_w18_sgd_lr5e-2_wd1e-4_bs32_x100.yaml

For example, test the HRNet-W18 on ImageNet on 4 GPUs:

python tools/ --cfg experiments/cls_hrnet_w18_sgd_lr5e-2_wd1e-4_bs32_x100.yaml --testModel hrnetv2_w18_imagenet_pretrained.pth
