We present a HARDI human brain multi-subject bundle atlas derived from a two-level intra-subject and inter-subject clustering strategy. Each atlas bundle corresponds to several inter-subject clusters labeled by an expert in neuroanatomy to account for subdivisions of the underlying pathway often presenting large variability across subjects. An atlas bundle is represented by the multi-subject list of the centroids of all intra-subject clusters in order to get a good sampling of the shape and localization variability. The atlas contains 36 bundles deep white matter bundles belonging to brain hemispheres and the corpus callosum, and 47 superficial white matter bundles in each hemisphere.
