AddBoundingBox

Bounding Boxes are a special kind of entity, similar to images. The AddBoundingBox call allows applications to add a region of interest to ApertureData Platform, where the entity added has a preset class of BoundingBox.

Parameters

  • [optional] _ref: for reference
  • [optional] image: reference to an existing image/frame (from an AddImage or FindImage call earlier in the transaction)

Blocks

  • [required] rectangle
  • [optional] properties
  • [optional] collections

The image parameter allows ApertureData Platform to create a connection between the image or frame and the BoundingBox. While it is not required, it is highly recommended.

In addition, there must be a rectangle block (indicating a rectangular region of interest) in order to add a BoundingBox to ApertureData Platform.

Examples

# Add a rectangular region of interest
"AddImage" : {
    "_ref" : 1234,
    "format" : "png",

   "properties" : {
        "name" : "interesting_stuff"
   }
}
"AddBoundingBox" : {
    "_ref" : 1,
    "image": 1234,
    "rectangle" : {"x": 120, "y": 50, "w": 40, "h": 40}
}


# Add a region of interest and specify properties
"AddImage" : {
    "_ref" : 1234,
    "format" : "png",

   "properties" : {
        "name" : "interesting_stuff"
   }
}
"AddBoundingBox" : {
    "_ref" : 1235,
    "image" : 1234,
    "rectangle" : {"x": 120, "y": 50, "w": 40, "h": 60},
    "properties" : {
        "name" : "Jane Doe"
    }
}
