You can add and edit graphical annotations to a resource you own. You also can add textual (metadata) annotations.

Graphical annotations are graphical objects, such as circles, points, or other shapes, that are added to the image in order to highlight areas of interest for future analysis or other purposes. Adding a graphical annotation to an image in Bisque does not alter the original image.

Once you have added a graphical annotation to an image, you can move, resize, delete, and show or hide the object on the image.

The graphical annotation types are:

  • Circles
  • Ellipses
  • Labels
  • Lines
  • Points
  • Polygons
  • Polylines
  • Rectangles
  • Squares
