Common Label Properties#

Different types of labels contain different aspects of annotation information about the data. Some are more general, and some are unique to a specific label type.

Three common properties of a label will be introduced first, and the unique ones will be explained under the corresponding type of label.

Take a 2D box label as an example:

>>> from tensorbay.label import LabeledBox2D
>>> box2d_label = LabeledBox2D(
... 10, 20, 30, 40,
... category="<LABEL_CATEGORY>",
... instance="<LABEL_INSTANCE_ID>"
... )
>>> box2d_label
LabeledBox2D(10, 20, 30, 40)(
  (category): '<LABEL_CATEGORY>',
  (attributes): {...},
  (instance): '<LABEL_INSTANCE_ID>'


Category is a string indicating the class of the labeled object.

>>> box2d_label.category


Attributes are the additional information about this data, and there is no limit on the number of attributes.

The attribute names and values are stored in key-value pairs.

>>> box2d_label.attributes


Instance is the unique id for the object inside of the label, which is mostly used for tracking tasks.

>>> box2d_label.instance
