Video Annotation and Reference System (VARS) 
VARS Annotation Interface

The VARS annotation interface is currently available only on MBARI ships and inside MBARI. Instructions and documentation are presented on these pages for those who might be using the interface on a cruise or doing research in the MBARI video lab.

A user guide has been created that describes each GUI: Video Tape, Video File, and Still Images. The Annotation Glossary names and describes the parts of the interface and also defines associated terms. An animated demonstration of the interface is also available.

Software for the interface is now available to researchers and institutions outside MBARI. See the Open Source project for more information.
