Annotating biometric databases¶
It is often required to annotate the biometric samples before running experiments. This often happens in face biometrics where each face is detected and location of landmarks on the face is saved prior to running experiments.
To facilitate the process of annotating a new database, this package provides a command-line script:
$ bob bio annotate --help
This script accepts two main parameters a database object that inherits from
bob.bio.base.database.BioDatabase and an annotator object that inherits
bob.bio.base.annotator.Annotator. Please see the help message of
the script for more information.
The script can also be run in parallel using Parallel Job Manager:
$ jman submit --array 64 -- bob bio annotate /path/to/config.py --array 64
The number that is given to the
--array options should match.
You can find the list of readily available annotator configurations using the
$ resources.py --types annotator
