Article summary

LandingLens offers these project types to help you label your images:

  • Object Detection
  • Classification
  • Segmentation
  • Visual Prompting
Select a Project Type When You Create a Project

Object Detection

Use to identify one or more objects in an image. Object Detection can be used to identify one or more objects within an image. Object Detection trains based on the labeled pixels (pixels inside the bounding box).

For more information, go to Object Detection.

Classification

Use to categorize (or "classify") the content of an image. Classification identifies the image as a whole. Classification trains based on all pixels in an image.

For more information, go to Classification.

Segmentation

Use to specify exact pixels to identify one or more regions within an image.

For more information, go to Segmentation.

Visual Prompting

Use to identify objects or areas in an image. You only need to label a few small areas for the model to detect the whole object or area.

For more information, go to Visual Prompting.

Caution:
Visual Prompting is in Beta. It might not function as well as our other production-ready features.
