L-CAS 3D Point Cloud Annotation Tool

Build Status Codacy Badge License: GPL v3

screenshot

The tool provides a semi-automatic labeling function, means the 3D point cloud data (loaded from the PCD file) is first clustered to provide candidates for labeling, each candidate being a point cluster. Then, the user annotating the data, can label each object by indicating candidate's ID, category, and visibility. A flowchart of this process is shown below.

The quickest way to activate the optional steps is to modify the source code and recompile. 😱

Compiling (tested on Ubuntu 14.04/16.04)

Prerequisites

  • Qt 4.x: sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev qt4-qmake
  • VTK 5.x: sudo apt-get install libvtk5-dev
  • PCL 1.7: sudo apt-get install libpcl-1.7-all-dev

Build and run

  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make
  • ./cloud_annotation_tool

Test examples

lcas_simple_data.zip contains 172 consecutive frames (in .pcd file) with 2 fully annotated pedestrians.
