Develop > Target Manager is a tool for managing augmented reality image targets on the Web. It is divided into two parts, namely, the Local Target Manager, which is a target image management tool for the implementation of the Image Tracker function of MAXST AR SDK, and the Cloud Target Manager, which is a target image management tool used for cloud recognition function. Target Manager is linked with license; therefore, you are required to use Target Manager for the license you chose.

Target Manager is optimized for Chrome browser.

If you have multiple cloud licenses, the licenses associated with the target group can be changed later.

The Edit button allows you to modify the metadata and width that are commonly applied to the name of the target group and the images in the group.

Up to 100 images can be uploaded per session. Only JPG and PNG image files smaller than 3 MB can be uploaded.

You can upload a large number of images to be used as targets at once. The name of the target image is registered as a file name. The file name must be composed of alphanumeric and special characters (_) without spaces, and the target name must be unique within the target group. The name of the target image can be modified individually after uploading.

You can also enter the metadata.

A delete button appears next to the file with the image upload problem, along with the reason for the error. If you attempt to upload without deleting the image, it will appear in the failed registration list after the image has been uploaded.

Types of unrecognized images

  1. Error: If the feature points of image is so poor to training or if the image has unknown error so it cannot be trained
  2. In Progress: Image training is in progress so image is not recognizable.
