in this cycle, we added

  • a full project-level dashboards

Project level dashboards

The project-level dashboard combines a set of charts and tables containing the summary of the current state of your project. It gives you a possibility not only to overview the aggregated data over every aspect of your project but also extract user-specific information, allowing personal monitoring and oversight for each individual user.

General analytics

General analytics is the overall summary of your project. It contained information like start date, last active date, the total number of contributors, and the total number of working users. It also demonstrated the overall progress of your project, by showing the ratio of competed vs. remaining images.

Image and work status analytics.

In this section, you will find complete information on the number of images that have a certain image status. This way you can control the overall progress of your project. You can also see the total number of instances and attributes created in your project, the total number of hours spent on annotation and quality assurance, and the total number of hours spent by the admins. This data can be filtered by users and user roles(admin, annotator, Quality assurance).

User tables

The user tables allow you to see the actual speed and efficiency of your workforce. You can find the total number of images and instances doe by a certain user in the scope of your projects, as well as the average velocity by images and instances. This allows you to see the speed and quality differences between different users and to follow the progress of each user during the course of the project. The data of this table can be filtered by user name and by the user role, You can also sort the table to show the highest or lowest results first.

Classes and attributes

The class and attribute tables allow you to see the actual number of objects that belong to a certain class. This comes in handy especially if you have a specific training requiring only a certain kind of objects to be predominantly annotated.

The data can be filtered by class/attribute name and can be sorted. YOu can also see the ratio of each class and attribute compared to others.

New tools

For those vector projects, where you have multiple objects covering each other, we have added a new feature allowing the user to cut the annotation time by not going over the double edges twice.

Instant annotation feature for adjacent polygons

All the user has to do, is to define the entrance and the exit points for the new polygon. After which the system will copy the edge of the adjacent polygon for the newly created one.
