How To Convert VGG Image Annotator CSV to YOLO Darknet TXT

If your labeling tool exported annotations in the


format, but you’re trying to use a

model that needs

YOLO Darknet

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
VGG Image Annotator CSV
images and annotations into the upload space.

Learn more about creating your own VGG Image Annotator annotations for your object detection dataset in our 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

YOLO Darknet TXT


Congratulations, you have successfully converted your dataset from

VGG Image Annotator CSV

format to

YOLO Darknet TXT
