The Visible Human Project

What Is It?

It is the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. The long-term goal of the Visible Human Project® is to produce a system of knowledge structures that will transparently link visual knowledge forms to symbolic knowledge formats such as the names of body parts. -- The Visible Human Project Website, 2008-11-20


  • There are some products on the website by the projects based on the Visible Human dataset that are available for purchase. The images of the body, however, are free of charge.
