Create classes

Programatically create classes using the SDK

To create one or more annotation classes within a dataset, use the create_annotation_class() method. Enter the name and class type of the class to be created. Class types that can be created programatically are:

  • bounding_box
  • cuboid
  • ellipse
  • keypoint
  • line
  • polygon
  • tag
dataset.create_annotation_class("label_name", "polygon")


Annotation Class Types

Keypoint skeleton & sub-anntotations cannot yet be created via the Python SDK. You can create keypoint skeletons & sub-annotations under the Classes page of your dataset in V7, or via our REST API.

Now that you've got a dataset complete with the annotation classes that your team will be using, all that's left is to annotate it!
