Interactive Segmentation Tool

Center for Digital Video Processing


This is the homepage of the CDVP Interactive Segmentation Tool. If you are looking for the automated evaluation tools, they can be found on our segmentation evaluation website.

The interactive segmentation tool is a research platform designed to facilitate the development and evaluation of interactive segmentation algorithms. The application enables users to extract objects from images, simply by marking areas of the image as “object” or “background” with the mouse. It runs on the Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X operating systems.

The latest news and updates related to the tool will be posted on the news page. For installation instructions, system requirements, and a user guide, visit the documentation page. The segmentation tool itself can be downloaded from the downloads page. This page also contains the ground-truth dataset we used for our evaluation experiments.
