Detect multiple objects in a local file (beta)

Perform object detection for multiple objects in an image using on a local file (for beta launch).

Code sample


Before trying this sample, follow the Python setup instructions in the Vision quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the Vision Python API reference documentation.

def localize_objects(path):
    """Localize objects in the local image.

    path: The path to the local file.
    from import vision_v1p3beta1 as vision
    client = vision.ImageAnnotatorClient()

    with open(path, 'rb') as image_file:
        content =
    image = vision.Image(content=content)

    objects = client.object_localization(

    print('Number of objects found: {}'.format(len(objects)))
    for object_ in objects:
        print('\n{} (confidence: {})'.format(, object_.score))
        print('Normalized bounding polygon vertices: ')
        for vertex in object_.bounding_poly.normalized_vertices:
            print(' - ({}, {})'.format(vertex.x, vertex.y))
