After selecting Skeleton as the tool type, you need to complete the reference image showing the points to be annotated.

💡Steps to Configure the Skeleton Tool

1. Basics

🖱️Right click and hold to drag the image. Zoom in/out with your mouse scroll wheel. 🖱️Left click to select a point or line.

By default, points and edges have the same color as the class. You can change them individually on the right, or modify the colors of existing points and edges in the left list.

You can also customize the reference image by clicking the Update Picture button.

2. Points

Create: Click the Add button, then 🖱️Left click on the image to place a point.

Edit: Click the Edit button. Select a point on the image or the left list, then hold down 🖱️Left click to drag and adjust its position.

Delete: Click the Delete button, then select a point and press the Backspace key to remove it. Alternatively, you can also delete it from the left list.

3. Edges

Create an Edge by Two Nodes: Click the Connect button, then 🖱️Left click on two points to create an edge. Press the ~ key to toggle directions (from the start to the end node) on or off. You can also click the icon on the left list to create an edge by selecting two nodes.

Edit: Select an edge on the left list, then click the edit icon to modify the start and end nodes.

Delete: Click the Delete button, then select an edge and press the Backspace key to remove it. Alternatively, you can also delete it from the left list.

4. Advanced Configuration

Optionally, you can click the Advanced Configuration button to set up extra details about the tool.

Keypoints Label: Enter a label for each point (displayed as a number by default). Each label should be under 255 characters and must not be duplicated.

  • Constraints (optional): Set limits for the Length, Width, Height, and Points of the cuboid. An error will be displayed if the result fails to meet these limits.
  • Standard (optional): Set the standard Length, Width, Height, and Points of the cuboid used for this class as a reference for annotators.

Segmentation

Annotate objects or regions in point clouds by segmenting them into different categories or objects.

Preview in Tools

  • Result Type (required): Specify whether the annotation result should be Instance Segmentation or Semantic Segmentation.

Semantic segmentation involves labeling each point in data with a class label without distinguishing between different instances of the same class.

Instance segmentation goes a step further by not only categorizing each point but also distinguishing between different instances of the same class.
