Category Distribution of Annotations
We compute the percentage of object instances in each category (and COCO super-categories).
To display different number of categories in the same plot, we compute the accumulated frequency of all sorted categories so that
all plots go from 0 to 100%. Put the mouse on the plot points to see the name of the category that represents and its frequency.
We also show the global sizes of the databases in a table.
In the three databases, person
is by far the most common category (around 25-30%).
In COCO, this is especially exaggerated, being the second category at 5%, 59 categories having less than 1% of the objects,
and 20 less than 0.5%.
Pascal and SBD categories, and especially super-categories in COCO, are more balanced.
