Importing Encord Project

If you already have a project on Encord Annotate, you can import that project with the following command:

encord-active import project
note

This will import a project to new folder in your current working directory. If you prefer to specify a different directory, use:

encord-active import project --targe /path/to/store/project

This will import the project into a subdirectory of /path/to/store/project.

tip

If you don't have an Encord Annotate project already, you can find other ways to import your local data here.

info

If you are new to the Encord platform, you can easily sign up for an Encord account.

To be able to import an Encord project, you will need the path to your private ssh-key associated with Encord (see documentation here).

1. Where is your private ssh key stored?: type the path to your private ssh key
2. What project would you like to import?: here, you can (fuzzy) search for the project title that you would like to import. Hit enter when your desired project is highlighted.
Next, encord-active will fetch your data and labels before computing all the metrics available in encord-active.
