ultralytics.data.converter.convert_dota_to_yolo_obb(dota_root_path)

Converts DOTA dataset annotations to YOLO OBB (Oriented Bounding Box) format.

The function processes images in the 'train' and 'val' folders of the DOTA dataset. For each image, it reads the associated label from the original labels directory and writes new labels in YOLO OBB format to a new directory.

Parameters:

Name Type Description Default
dota_root_path str

The root directory path of the DOTA dataset.

required
Example
from ultralytics.data.converter import convert_dota_to_yolo_obb

convert_dota_to_yolo_obb('path/to/DOTA')
Notes

The directory structure assumed for the DOTA dataset:

- DOTA
    ├─ images
    │   ├─ train
    │   └─ val
    └─ labels
        ├─ train_original

After execution, the function will organize the labels into:

Name Type Description Default
arr1 ndarray

A NumPy array of shape (N, 2) representing N 2D points.

required
arr2 ndarray

A NumPy array of shape (M, 2) representing M 2D points.

required

Returns:

ultralytics.data.converter.merge_multi_segment(segments)

Merge multiple segments into one list by connecting the coordinates with the minimum distance between each segment. This function connects these coordinates with a thin line to merge all segments into one.

Parameters:

Name Type Description Default
segments List[List]

Original segmentations in COCO's JSON file. Each element is a list of coordinates, like [segmentation1, segmentation2,...].

required

Returns:

Name Type Description
s List[ndarray]

A list of connected segments represented as NumPy arrays.

ultralytics.data.converter.yolo_bbox2segment(im_dir, save_dir=None, sam_model='sam_b.pt')

Converts existing object detection dataset (bounding boxes) to segmentation dataset or oriented bounding box (OBB) in YOLO format. Generates segmentation data using SAM auto-annotator as needed.

Parameters:

Name Type Description Default
im_dir str | Path

Path to image directory to convert.

required
save_dir str | Path

Path to save the generated labels, labels will be saved into labels-segment in the same directory level of im_dir if save_dir is None. Default: None.

None
sam_model str

Segmentation model to use for intermediate segmentation data; optional.
