Create a Project Overview

What is a Project?

Projects define how you will create labels and manage them. When you create a project, you will first customize its specifications (i.e. annotation type, tags, object classes, etc.) then populate the project by adding data to it.
By adding data to a project, you will automatically create a label for each data file. A label is defined as a JSON file that stores all tags and relevant information about the data file. Simply put, Project + Data ⇒ Label!

Create a Sample Project

What is a Sample Project?

A sample project is a project we provide pre-loaded with a large dataset so that users can understand how to use Suite’s features before loading their own data.
Each sample project includes a Custom Auto-Label AI. Creating a Custom Auto-Label AI for a project requires multiple steps, but you can try out the feature without creating one yourself through the sample projects.

How to Create

  1. 1.
    Click +New Project on the top right corner of the Projects menu, and select Sample Project on the dropdown menu.
  2. 2.
    Select one of the five sample projects.
  • Tiny Set-10: For the Suite Demo | 10 images, includes all annotation types
  • Retail: Detecting products on the display stand | 1000 images
  • Autonomous driving: Caltech pedestrian detection dataset | 999 images
  • Agriculture: MineApple Detecting apples | 1001 images
  • Industrial surface: Detecting defects in steel pipes | 774 images
3. Click Create.
  • All large dataset projects except for Tiny Set-10 takes about 10 minutes to finish creating. You can track the progress on the top notification window.

Duplicate a project

If you want to create multiple projects with the same configuration, you can use the project duplicate feature. This saves your time in creating new projects from the very beginning.

How to duplicate a project

1. In Project Overview, click the settings icon on the Project Configuration card.
2. Click Duplicate on the top right corner of the Project Configuration card.
3. Enter the new project name and click Ok to finish creating the project.
※ Note : The datasets linked to the previous project do not get duplicated to the new project. You will have to use the Data tab under Account view to assigned a particular dataset to the newly duplicated project.
