At the very minimum, every project in Labelbox is required to have the following:

  • A Dataset

  • An Editor

  • An Ontology

These 3 configurations are the foundation for your labeling workflow. Once you have a Dataset, Editor, and Ontology configured for your project, you can further customize your labeling process with QA tools, queue customization, issues & comments, etc.

The relationship diagram below illustrates the general framework of a typical Labelbox project configuration.

How to create a project

To create a project via the Labelbox UI, follow these steps:

  1. Under the Projects tab, select New project.

  2. Add a project name and an optional description for your project.

  3. Attach a dataset to your project and click Next to proceed to the next step. To import a new dataset to Labelbox, click Add data.

  4. Choose a label editor. Editor is the latest labeling interface and has the most robust labeling and QA tools. However, if you are labeling geospatial data, select the Tiled Imagery Editor. To build your own custom labeling interface with HTML and JavaScript, select the Custom Editor.

  5. Set up your project's ontology. For a complete tutorial on this step, see the Configure ontology. You may also attach labeler instructions by clicking on the Instructions tab. Click Confirm when you are done.

  6. Set up quality assurance tools for your project. In this step, you can turn on Benchmarks or Consensus as well as the Review step.

  7. Click Finish to complete the setup process.

How to delete a project
