Exporting project data

To export a Kili project through Kili UI, follow the steps in Exporting Kili project labels.
For information on available export formats, refer to Exported label formats.
For information on the available export scopes, refer to Scope of exported labels.

For information on how to export labels programmatically, refer to Kili SDK documentation and Kili CLI documentation.

Exporting Kili project labels

  1. From the project Queue page, select the assets that you want to export. Quick actions menu appears above the asset list.
  2. From the Quick actions menu, select Export.
  3. From the "Export data" popup window, select your export parameters and then click Export.
  4. Wait for the notification to appear in the top-right corner of the screen.

For an example of how to deal with exporting project data programmatically, refer to our sample recipe:



Customizing export parameters

From the "Export data" popup window, you can customize these export parameters:

Exported label formats

📘

  • You can export project labels to additional formats, like Pandas dataframe or COCO. For details, refer to Kili SDK documentation and Kili CLI documentation.
  • Simple Kili format is available as the export option only for projects with one labeling job. The exported JSON structure does not contain job-related information.
  • If you exported labels from this project before, you will have the option to select from previous. When you select a previous export, all settings and file name will stay the same as before; no need to customize your export again.
  • Each exported zip archive contains an additional file called README.kili.txt with the following data:
    • Project name
    • Project identifier
    • Project description
    • Export date
    • Exported format
    • Scope of exported labels

Splitting labels per labeling jobs

You can select whether or not you want your labeled assets to be placed in separate folders representing each labeling job.

Here's an example of an exported YOLOv4 file, with One label per asset for each job option selected:

export.zip
|--README.kili.txt
|--images
|--JOB_0
    |--classes.txt
    |--labels

Here's an example of an exported YOLOv4 file, with One label per asset grouping all jobs option selected:

export.zip
|--README.kili.txt
|--classes.txt
|--images
|--labels

Scope of exported labels

  • Latest label (for each asset): a reduced-size format containing the latest label for each asset.
    • The latest label is the most recent label you can trust for your model.
    • The exported file will not contain the whole list of asset labels; just information about the latest label.
  • Latest labels from each author (for each asset): a reduced-size format containing the latest label for each user.
