Loopy API Introduction

Written on Saturday January 30, 2021

Loopy is cloud based video analysis and video tracking software used through your web browser. You can use it online (free trial) or via a dedicated private server for your research group.

In both cases you might want to use a scripting language such as R or Python, to automatically retrieve your video tracking results for further analysis.

In this short example we demonstrate how to use the API in Python to download and plot a deep learning tracking result.

If you can not see the embedded IPython notebook below, the code is posted on github.


All Loopy documentation, including the API documentation, can be easily accessed by clicking on 'Documentation' once logged in.
