IAT – Image Annotation Tool

The annotation of image and video data of large datasets is a fundamental task in multimedia information retrieval and computer vision applications. In order to support the users during the image and video annotation process, several software tools have been developed to provide them with a graphical environment which helps drawing object contours, handling tracking information and specifying object metadata.

 

Semi-automatic and Automatic Video Annotation

We have developed the iVAT: an interactive Video Annotation Tool. It supports manual, semi-automatic and automatic annotations through the interaction of the user with various detection algorithms.

 

Video Indexing and Summarization

Very large databases of images and videos depend on efficient algorithms to enable fast browsing and access to the information pursued.
