I made a thing! It's called BBoxr and it's a web app to collect images and bounding-box information without installing anything. It works for desktops and phones. You can play with it here: www.rpi-bboxr.web.app
Some time ago i needed to evaluate a detection model for some project.
To do this I had to collect some images with bounding boxes for a small number of classes.
This is a simple task that should be done in a few minutes but unfortunately the process to do this was super convoluted at the time.
I had to take the images with my phone, save them to my PC, name them according to their class, download and install a tool to annotate the bounding boxes and finally annotate the images.
There must be a simpler way right?
Well, seems like there wasn't.
So in order to save myself a couple of minutes and the installation of an annotation tool I sat down for a couple of days and installed lots of tools.
Just so you don't have to!😉
While this app is certainly not intended for professional use, it might save someone else a few minutes in the future. In addition it was super interesting to get back to doing something with web technologies and to see how they have evolved over the last few years. So to wrap this up I'd say that this project was a great success!👍
