How to create a project

Before you can begin labeling, you must first create a project. Each project is a training data management environment where you can manage the performance, quality, and progress of your labeling project.

If you want to create a project programmatically, see our Project setup script.
  1. Add a new project which is located in the Projects tab.
  1. Add a name to your project. You may optionally add a project description as well.
  1. You can attach an existing dataset or add a new dataset.
  1. Choose a label editor. Unless you need Tiled Imagery, the Editor has all of the labeling and QA tools you need. Once you select a label editor you'll be able to customize your ontology. See About the Labelbox ontology to learn how to create a custom ontology for your project.
  1. After you select "complete setup", click on the "instructions" tab in the left panel to attach instructions for your labeling team to see when they open the labeling interface. You can also do this by selecting a project and navigating to "Settings" > "Label editor" > "Edit" > "Instructions".
  1. Once setup is complete it will bring you to the project overview page where you can start labeling. This is also where you manage your project.
