Label Types

Learn about the different types of labels that are possible with Scribe

Scribe provides three basic label types for your images and videos. These label types provide increasing levels of granularity to support the needs of your specific use case.


Provide annotation for an entire image, or single frame of video. To classify an image, just create your concepts, click on the concepts in the right-hand sidebar and click submit.

Bounding Box Detection

Provide annotation within a single box-shaped region of an image or video. To use bounding box detection, you must start with a workflow that offers detection capabilities. From here you can label detected regions, or draw your own bounding boxes for labeling.
