How To Convert COCO JSON to Tensorflow Object Detection CSV

If your labeling tool exported annotations in the

COCO

format, but you’re trying to use a

model that needs

Tensorflow CSV

annotations, we’ve got you covered. You can convert data between these formats for free in 3 clicks with Roboflow.

Step 1: Create a free Roboflow public workspace

Roboflow is the universal conversion tool for computer vision annotation formats. The Public plan is the best way for those exploring personal projects, class assignments, and other experiments to try Roboflow. To convert your dataset, start by creating a free workspace on the Public plan.

Step 2: Upload your data into Roboflow

Once your account has been created, click Create Dataset.

Upload your data to Roboflow by dragging and dropping your
COCO JSON
images and annotations into the upload space.

To learn how to create COCO JSON yourself from scratch, see our CVAT (object detection annotation tool) tutorial.

Step 3: Generate Dataset Version

Next, you can choose Preprocessing and Augmentation options for your dataset version and then click Generate.

Step 4: Export Dataset Version

After generating, you will be prompted to Export your dataset. You can choose to receive your dataset as a .zip file or a curl download link. You can also choose which format you would like to export. Choose

Tensorflow Object Detection CSV

.

Congratulations, you have successfully converted your dataset from

COCO JSON

format to

Tensorflow Object Detection CSV

format!

?


Yes! It is free to convert

COCO JSON

data into the

Tensorflow Object Detection CSV

format on the Roboflow platform.

How long does it take to convert
COCO JSON
data to
Tensorflow Object Detection CSV
?


If you have between a few and a few thousand images, converting data between these formats will be quick. But, the time it takes to convert between data formats increases with the more images you have.
