The Complete Image Annotation Tool

Encord provides a single platform for all your image annotation needs, alleviating the need for building & maintaining expensive in-house tooling and infrastructure. Our platform supports:


  • ✅ Model-assisted image labeling
  • ✅ Polyline
  • ✅ Polygon
  • ✅ Semantic & instance segmentation
  • ✅ Image classification
  • ✅ Object primitives


... and much more!

Annotator management at scale

Annotator Management At Scale

Encord’s collaborative annotator and data management dashboards make it much easier to scale large image annotation teams, whether in-house or outsourced.


You can automatically assign annotation tasks, monitor annotators’ performance and set up custom quality control pipelines.

12x Image Annotation Speed With Automation

Automated image labeling can help you reduce the time your annotators spend annotating images.


Encord’s API & Python SDK helps you import model predictions. Our proprietary micro-models can also be used to pre-label images so that your annotators only need to review the annotated data.

Use cases

Solve Any Image Labeling Task 10x Faster

Encord's tools support image annotation for a variety of industries such as healthcare, government, and computer vision.

Stanford Medicine

The Division of Nephrology reduced experiment duration by 80% while processing 3x more images.

Problem
Stanford was using three different pieces of software to identify, annotate, and count podocytes and glomeruli in microscopy images.
Solution
Stanford started using Encord's annotation tools & SDK to automate segmentations, count, and calculate sizes of segments.
Results
With Encord, Stanford researchers reduced experiment duration from an average of 21 to 4 days while processing 3x the number of images.
