Onboarding Data and Labels

Onboarding your data is the very first step of your machine learning pipeline. After all, a deep learning model cannot be built without data. This step essentially means having your visual assets (e.g. images, annotations) uploaded to the platform. Take the first step in working with data on Nexus by starting here.

Common Questions

How do I upload my images?

You can add your visual data to the platform during the onboarding process by uploading data. We have recently added some new features - Connect Amazon S3 Bucket and Connection Manager - for even easier assimilation to the platform. Other cloud storage connectivity services are coming soon!

How do I upload my annotations?

If you already have your annotation data ready, you can also upload your annotations during the onboarding process.

Why can't I upload my annotation data?

Please ensure that you upload image data first before you add annotation data.

What if I only have images but not annotation data?

While image data is the minimum requirement for using the Datature platform to build your computer vision pipeline, annotation data is not. You can always annotate your images using our Annotator. However, we do not have any support for models with purely unannotated images, so be sure to annotate before you run any workflows.

What happens if I upload duplicate files or different files with the same file name?

The most recently uploaded file will replace the old file, so please make sure to have separate names for different data.

What image formats do you support?

Nexus supports .PNG, .JPG, and .JPEG. If you have other file types, such as DICOM, you will have to split into supported file types in order for the data to be usable.

Is there an image file size restriction?

Yes, an image should be less than 10 MB.
