GeneAnnotator: A Semi-automatic Annotation Tool for Visual Scene Graph

6 Sep 2021  ·  Zhixuan Zhang, Chi Zhang, Zhenning Niu, Le Wang, Yuehu Liu ·

In this manuscript, we introduce a semi-automatic scene graph annotation tool for images, the GeneAnnotator. This software allows human annotators to describe the existing relationships between participators in the visual scene in the form of directed graphs, hence enabling the learning and reasoning on visual relationships, e.g., image captioning, VQA and scene graph generation, etc. The annotations for certain image datasets could either be merged in a single VG150 data-format file to support most existing models for scene graph learning or transformed into a separated annotation file for each single image to build customized datasets. Moreover, GeneAnnotator provides a rule-based relationship recommending algorithm to reduce the heavy annotation workload. With GeneAnnotator, we propose Traffic Genome, a comprehensive scene graph dataset with 1000 diverse traffic images, which in return validates the effectiveness of the proposed software for scene graph annotation. The project source code, with usage examples and sample data is available at, under the Apache open-source license.
