Defined in:
(unknown)

Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Sending a Request Using Rekognition

var rekognition = new AWS.Rekognition();
rekognition.compareFaces(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the Rekognition object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var rekognition = new AWS.Rekognition({apiVersion: '2016-06-27'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the rekognition service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  rekognition: '2016-06-27',
  // other service API versions
};

var rekognition = new AWS.Rekognition();

Options Hash (options):

  • params (map)

    An optional map of parameters to bind to every request sent by this service object. For more information on bound parameters, see "Working with Services" in the Getting Started Guide.

  • endpoint (String)

    The endpoint URI to send requests to. The default endpoint is built from the configured region. The endpoint should be a string like 'https://{service}.{region}.amazonaws.com'.

  • accessKeyId (String)

    your AWS access key ID.

  • secretAccessKey (String)

    your AWS secret access key.

  • sessionToken (AWS.Credentials)

    the optional AWS session token to sign requests with.

  • credentials (AWS.Credentials)

    the AWS credentials to sign requests with. You can either specify this object, or specify the accessKeyId and secretAccessKey options directly.

  • credentialProvider (AWS.CredentialProviderChain)

    the provider chain used to resolve credentials if no static credentials property is set.

  • region (String)

    the region to send service requests to. See AWS.Rekognition.region for more information.

    the maximum amount of retries to attempt with a request. See AWS.Rekognition.maxRetries for more information.

  • maxRedirects (Integer)

    the maximum amount of redirects to follow with a request. See AWS.Rekognition.maxRedirects for more information.

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  • correctClockSkew (Boolean)

    whether to apply a clock skew correction and retry requests that fail because of an skewed client clock. Defaults to false.

  • s3ForcePathStyle (Boolean)

    whether to force path style URLs for S3 objects.

  • s3BucketEndpoint (Boolean)

    whether the provided endpoint addresses an individual bucket (false if it addresses the root API endpoint). Note that setting this configuration option requires an endpoint to be provided explicitly to the service constructor.

  • s3DisableBodySigning (Boolean)

    whether S3 body signing should be disabled when using signature version v4. Body signing can only be disabled when using https. Defaults to true.

  • retryDelayOptions (map)

    A set of options to configure the retry delay on retryable errors. Currently supported options are:

    • base [Integer] — The base number of milliseconds to use in the exponential backoff for operation retries. Defaults to 100 ms for all services except DynamoDB, where it defaults to 50ms.
    • customBackoff [function] — A custom function that accepts a retry count and returns the amount of time to delay in milliseconds. The base option will be ignored if this option is supplied.
  • httpOptions (map)

    A set of options to pass to the low-level HTTP request. Currently supported options are:

    • proxy [String] — the URL to proxy requests through
    • agent [http.Agent, https.Agent] — the Agent object to perform HTTP requests with. Used for connection pooling. Defaults to the global agent (http.globalAgent) for non-SSL connections. Note that for SSL connections, a special Agent object is used in order to enable peer certificate verification. This feature is only available in the Node.js environment.
    • connectTimeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after failing to establish a connection with the server after connectTimeout milliseconds. This timeout has no effect once a socket connection has been established.
    • timeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after timeout milliseconds of inactivity on the socket. Defaults to two minutes (120000).
    • xhrAsync [Boolean] — Whether the SDK will send asynchronous HTTP requests. Used in the browser environment only. Set to false to send requests synchronously. Defaults to true (async on).

Method Details

compareFaces(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Compares a face in the source input image with each face detected in the target input image.

Note: If the source image contains multiple faces, the service detects the largest face and uses it to compare with each face detected in the target image.

In response, the operation returns an array of face matches ordered by similarity score with the highest similarity scores first. For each face match, the response provides a bounding box of the face and confidence value (indicating the level of confidence that the bounding box contains a face). The response also provides a similarity score, which indicates how closely the faces match.

Note: By default, only faces with the similarity score of greater than or equal to 80% are returned in the response. You can change this value.

In addition to the face matches, the response returns information about the face in the source image, including the bounding box of the face and confidence value.

Note: This is a stateless API operation. That is, the operation does not persist any data.

For an example, see get-started-exercise-compare-faces

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:CompareFaces action.

          S3 object key name.

        • Version — (String)

          If the bucket is versioning enabled, you can specify the object version.

    • SimilarityThreshold — (Float)

      The minimum level of confidence in the match you want included in the result.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • SourceImageFace — (map)

        The face from the source image that was used for comparison.

        • BoundingBox — (map)

          Identifies the bounding box around the object or face. The left (x-coordinate) and top (y-coordinate) are coordinates representing the top and left sides of the bounding box. Note that the upper-left corner of the image is the origin (0,0).

          The top and left values returned are ratios of the overall image size. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the top-left coordinate of the bounding box is 350x50 pixels, the API returns a left value of 0.5 (350/700) and a top value of 0.25 (50/200).

          The width and height values represent the dimensions of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image dimension. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the bounding box width is 70 pixels, the width returned is 0.1.

          Note: The bounding box coordinates can have negative values. For example, if Amazon Rekognition is able to detect a face that is at the image edge and is only partially visible, the service can return coordinates that are outside the image bounds and, depending on the image edge, you might get negative values or values greater than 1 for the left or top values.
          • Width — (Float)

            Width of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image width.

          • Height — (Float)

            Height of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image height.

          • Left — (Float)

            Left coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image width.

          • Top — (Float)

            Top coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image height.

        • Confidence — (Float)

          Confidence level that the selected bounding box contains a face.

      • FaceMatches — (Array<map>)

        Provides an array of CompareFacesMatch objects. Each object provides the bounding box, confidence that the bounding box contains a face, and the similarity between the face in the bounding box and the face in the source image.

        • Similarity — (Float)

          Level of confidence that the faces match.

        • Face — (map)

          Provides face metadata (bounding box and confidence that the bounding box actually contains a face).

          • BoundingBox — (map)

            Identifies the bounding box around the object or face. The left (x-coordinate) and top (y-coordinate) are coordinates representing the top and left sides of the bounding box. Note that the upper-left corner of the image is the origin (0,0).

            The top and left values returned are ratios of the overall image size. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the top-left coordinate of the bounding box is 350x50 pixels, the API returns a left value of 0.5 (350/700) and a top value of 0.25 (50/200).

            The width and height values represent the dimensions of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image dimension. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the bounding box width is 70 pixels, the width returned is 0.1.

            Note: The bounding box coordinates can have negative values. For example, if Amazon Rekognition is able to detect a face that is at the image edge and is only partially visible, the service can return coordinates that are outside the image bounds and, depending on the image edge, you might get negative values or values greater than 1 for the left or top values.
            • Width — (Float)

              Width of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image width.

            • Height — (Float)

              Height of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image height.

            • Left — (Float)

              Left coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image width.

            • Top — (Float)

              Top coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image height.

          • Confidence — (Float)

            Level of confidence that what the bounding box contains is a face.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createCollection(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates a collection in an AWS Region. You can add faces to the collection using the operation.

For example, you might create collections, one for each of your application users. A user can then index faces using the IndexFaces operation and persist results in a specific collection. Then, a user can search the collection for faces in the user-specific container.

For an example, see example1.

detectFaces(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Detects faces within an image (JPEG or PNG) that is provided as input.

For each face detected, the operation returns face details including a bounding box of the face, a confidence value (that the bounding box contains a face), and a fixed set of attributes such as facial landmarks (for example, coordinates of eye and mouth), gender, presence of beard, sunglasses, etc.

The face-detection algorithm is most effective on frontal faces. For non-frontal or obscured faces, the algorithm may not detect the faces or might detect faces with lower confidence.

Note: This is a stateless API operation. That is, the operation does not persist any data.

For an example, see get-started-exercise-detect-faces.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:DetectFaces action.

Calling the detectFaces operation

var params = {
  Image: { /* required */
    Bytes: new Buffer('...') || 'STRING_VALUE',
    S3Object: {
      Bucket: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Name: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Version: 'STRING_VALUE'
    }
  },
  Attributes: [
    DEFAULT | ALL,
    /* more items */
  ]
};
rekognition.detectFaces(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Image — (map)

      The image in which you want to detect faces. You can specify a blob or an S3 object.

      • Bytes — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

        Blob of image bytes up to 5 MBs.

      • S3Object — (map)

        Identifies an S3 object as the image source.

        • Bucket — (String)

          Name of the S3 bucket.

          If the bucket is versioning enabled, you can specify the object version.

    • Attributes — (Array<String>)

      A list of facial attributes you want to be returned. This can be the default list of attributes or all attributes. If you don't specify a value for Attributes or if you specify ["DEFAULT"], the API returns the following subset of facial attributes: BoundingBox, Confidence, Pose, Quality and Landmarks. If you provide ["ALL"], all facial attributes are returned but the operation will take longer to complete.

      If you provide both, ["ALL", "DEFAULT"], the service uses a logical AND operator to determine which attributes to return (in this case, all attributes).

          Confidence level that the bounding box contains a face (and not a different object such as a tree).

      • OrientationCorrection — (String)

        The algorithm detects the image orientation. If it detects that the image was rotated, it returns the degrees of rotation. If your application is displaying the image, you can use this value to adjust the orientation.

        For example, if the service detects that the input image was rotated by 90 degrees, it corrects orientation, performs face detection, and then returns the faces. That is, the bounding box coordinates in the response are based on the corrected orientation.

        Note: If the source image Exif metadata populates the orientation field, Amazon Rekognition does not perform orientation correction and the value of OrientationCorrection will be nil.
        Possible values include:
        • "ROTATE_0"
        • "ROTATE_90"
        • "ROTATE_180"
        • "ROTATE_270"

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

detectLabels(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Detects instances of real-world labels within an image (JPEG or PNG) provided as input. This includes objects like flower, tree, and table; events like wedding, graduation, and birthday party; and concepts like landscape, evening, and nature. For an example, see get-started-exercise-detect-labels.

For each object, scene, and concept the API returns one or more labels. Each label provides the object name, and the level of confidence that the image contains the object. For example, suppose the input image has a lighthouse, the sea, and a rock. The response will include all three labels, one for each object.

{Name: lighthouse, Confidence: 98.4629}

{Name: rock,Confidence: 79.2097}

{Name: sea,Confidence: 75.061}

In the preceding example, the operation returns one label for each of the three objects. The operation can also return multiple labels for the same object in the image. For example, if the input image shows a flower (for example, a tulip), the operation might return the following three labels.

{Name: flower,Confidence: 99.0562}

{Name: plant,Confidence: 99.0562}

{Name: tulip,Confidence: 99.0562}

In this example, the detection algorithm more precisely identifies the flower as a tulip.

You can provide the input image as an S3 object or as base64-encoded bytes. In response, the API returns an array of labels. In addition, the response also includes the orientation correction. Optionally, you can specify MinConfidence to control the confidence threshold for the labels returned. The default is 50%. You can also add the MaxLabels parameter to limit the number of labels returned.

Note: If the object detected is a person, the operation doesn't provide the same facial details that the DetectFaces operation provides.

This is a stateless API operation. That is, the operation does not persist any data.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:DetectLabels action.

      Maximum number of labels you want the service to return in the response. The service returns the specified number of highest confidence labels.

    • MinConfidence — (Float)

      Specifies the minimum confidence level for the labels to return. Amazon Rekognition doesn't return any labels with confidence lower than this specified value.

      If MinConfidence is not specified, the operation returns labels with a confidence values greater than or equal to 50 percent.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

detectModerationLabels(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Detects explicit or suggestive adult content in a specified .jpeg or .png image. Use DetectModerationLabels to moderate images depending on your requirements. For example, you might want to filter images that contain nudity, but not images containing suggestive content.

To filter images, use the labels returned by DetectModerationLabels to determine which types of content are appropriate. For information about moderation labels, see howitworks-moderateimage.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the detectModerationLabels operation

var params = {
  Image: { /* required */
    Bytes: new Buffer('...') || 'STRING_VALUE',
    S3Object: {
      Bucket: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Name: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Version: 'STRING_VALUE'

  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Image — (map)

      Provides the source image either as bytes or an S3 object.

      The region for the S3 bucket containing the S3 object must match the region you use for Amazon Rekognition operations.

      You may need to Base64-encode the image bytes depending on the language you are using and whether or not you are using the AWS SDK. For more information, see example4.

      If you use the Amazon CLI to call Amazon Rekognition operations, passing image bytes using the Bytes property is not supported. You must first upload the image to an Amazon S3 bucket and then call the operation using the S3Object property.

      For Amazon Rekognition to process an S3 object, the user must have permission to access the S3 object. For more information, see manage-access-resource-policies.

      • Bytes — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

        Blob of image bytes up to 5 MBs.

      • S3Object — (map)

        • Bucket — (String)

          Name of the S3 bucket.

        • Name — (String)

          S3 object key name.

        • Version — (String)

          If the bucket is versioning enabled, you can specify the object version.

    • MinConfidence — (Float)

      Specifies the minimum confidence level for the labels to return. Amazon Rekognition doesn't return any labels with a confidence level lower than this specified value.

      If you don't specify MinConfidence, the operation returns labels with confidence values greater than or equal to 50 percent.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • ModerationLabels — (Array<map>)

        A list of labels for explicit or suggestive adult content found in the image. The list includes the top-level label and each child label detected in the image. This is useful for filtering specific categories of content.

        • Confidence — (Float)

          Specifies the confidence that Amazon Rekognition has that the label has been correctly identified.

          If you don't specify the MinConfidence parameter in the call to DetectModerationLabels, the operation returns labels with a confidence value greater than or equal to 50 percent.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

indexFaces(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Detects faces in the input image and adds them to the specified collection.

Amazon Rekognition does not save the actual faces detected. Instead, the underlying detection algorithm first detects the faces in the input image, and for each face extracts facial features into a feature vector, and stores it in the back-end database. Amazon Rekognition uses feature vectors when performing face match and search operations using the and operations.

If you provide the optional externalImageID for the input image you provided, Amazon Rekognition associates this ID with all faces that it detects. When you call the operation, the response returns the external ID. You can use this external image ID to create a client-side index to associate the faces with each image. You can then use the index to find all faces in an image.

In response, the operation returns an array of metadata for all detected faces. This includes, the bounding box of the detected face, confidence value (indicating the bounding box contains a face), a face ID assigned by the service for each face that is detected and stored, and an image ID assigned by the service for the input image If you request all facial attributes (using the detectionAttributes parameter, Amazon Rekognition returns detailed facial attributes such as facial landmarks (for example, location of eye and mount) and other facial attributes such gender. If you provide the same image, specify the same collection, and use the same external ID in the IndexFaces operation, Amazon Rekognition doesn't save duplicate face metadata.

For an example, see example2.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:IndexFaces action.

Calling the indexFaces operation

var params = {
  CollectionId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Image: { /* required */
    Bytes: new Buffer('...') || 'STRING_VALUE',
    S3Object: {
      Bucket: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Name: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Version: 'STRING_VALUE'
    }
  },
  DetectionAttributes: [
    DEFAULT | ALL,
    /* more items */
  ],
  ExternalImageId: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
rekognition.indexFaces(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CollectionId — (String)

      The ID of an existing collection to which you want to add the faces that are detected in the input images.

    • Image — (map)

      Provides the source image either as bytes or an S3 object.

      The region for the S3 bucket containing the S3 object must match the region you use for Amazon Rekognition operations.

      You may need to Base64-encode the image bytes depending on the language you are using and whether or not you are using the AWS SDK. For more information, see example4.

      If you use the Amazon CLI to call Amazon Rekognition operations, passing image bytes using the Bytes property is not supported. You must first upload the image to an Amazon S3 bucket and then call the operation using the S3Object property.

      For Amazon Rekognition to process an S3 object, the user must have permission to access the S3 object. For more information, see manage-access-resource-policies.

      • Bytes — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

        Blob of image bytes up to 5 MBs.

      • S3Object — (map)

        Identifies an S3 object as the image source.

        • Bucket — (String)

          Name of the S3 bucket.

        • Name — (String)

          S3 object key name.

        • Version — (String)

          If the bucket is versioning enabled, you can specify the object version.

    • ExternalImageId — (String)

      ID you want to assign to all the faces detected in the image.

    • DetectionAttributes — (Array<String>)

      A list of facial attributes that you want to be returned. This can be the default list of attributes or all attributes. If you don't specify a value for Attributes or if you specify ["DEFAULT"], the API returns the following subset of facial attributes: BoundingBox, Confidence, Pose, Quality and Landmarks. If you provide ["ALL"], all facial attributes are returned but the operation will take longer to complete.

      If you provide both, ["ALL", "DEFAULT"], the service uses a logical AND operator to determine which attributes to return (in this case, all attributes).

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • FaceRecords — (Array<map>)

        An array of faces detected and added to the collection. For more information, see howitworks-index-faces.

        • Face — (map)

          Describes the face properties such as the bounding box, face ID, image ID of the source image, and external image ID that you assigned.

          • FaceId — (String)

            Unique identifier that Amazon Rekognition assigns to the face.

          • BoundingBox — (map)

            Identifies the bounding box around the object or face. The left (x-coordinate) and top (y-coordinate) are coordinates representing the top and left sides of the bounding box. Note that the upper-left corner of the image is the origin (0,0).

            The top and left values returned are ratios of the overall image size. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the top-left coordinate of the bounding box is 350x50 pixels, the API returns a left value of 0.5 (350/700) and a top value of 0.25 (50/200).

            The width and height values represent the dimensions of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image dimension. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the bounding box width is 70 pixels, the width returned is 0.1.

            Note: The bounding box coordinates can have negative values. For example, if Amazon Rekognition is able to detect a face that is at the image edge and is only partially visible, the service can return coordinates that are outside the image bounds and, depending on the image edge, you might get negative values or values greater than 1 for the left or top values.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listCollections(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns list of collection IDs in your account. If the result is truncated, the response also provides a NextToken that you can use in the subsequent request to fetch the next set of collection IDs.

For an example, see example1.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:ListCollections action.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To list the collections


/* This operation returns a list of Rekognition collections. */

 var params = {
 };
 rekognition.listCollections(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    CollectionIds: [
       "myphotos"
    ]
   }
   */
 });

Calling the listCollections operation

var params = {
  MaxResults: 0,
  NextToken: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
rekognition.listCollections(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • NextToken — (String)

      Pagination token from the previous response.

    • MaxResults — (Integer)

      Maximum number of collection IDs to return.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • CollectionIds — (Array<String>)

        An array of collection IDs.

      • NextToken — (String)

        If the result is truncated, the response provides a NextToken that you can use in the subsequent request to fetch the next set of collection IDs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listFaces(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns metadata for faces in the specified collection. This metadata includes information such as the bounding box coordinates, the confidence (that the bounding box contains a face), and face ID. For an example, see example3.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:ListFaces action.

Calling the listFaces operation

var params = {
  CollectionId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  MaxResults: 0,
  NextToken: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
rekognition.listFaces(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CollectionId — (String)

      ID of the collection from which to list the faces.

    • NextToken — (String)

      If the previous response was incomplete (because there is more data to retrieve), Amazon Rekognition returns a pagination token in the response. You can use this pagination token to retrieve the next set of faces.

    • MaxResults — (Integer)

      Maximum number of faces to return.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Faces — (Array<map>)

        An array of Face objects.

        • FaceId — (String)

          Unique identifier that Amazon Rekognition assigns to the face.

        • BoundingBox — (map)

          Identifies the bounding box around the object or face. The left (x-coordinate) and top (y-coordinate) are coordinates representing the top and left sides of the bounding box. Note that the upper-left corner of the image is the origin (0,0).

          The top and left values returned are ratios of the overall image size. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the top-left coordinate of the bounding box is 350x50 pixels, the API returns a left value of 0.5 (350/700) and a top value of 0.25 (50/200).

          The width and height values represent the dimensions of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image dimension. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the bounding box width is 70 pixels, the width returned is 0.1.

          Note: The bounding box coordinates can have negative values. For example, if Amazon Rekognition is able to detect a face that is at the image edge and is only partially visible, the service can return coordinates that are outside the image bounds and, depending on the image edge, you might get negative values or values greater than 1 for the left or top values.
          • Width — (Float)

            Width of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image width.

          • Height — (Float)

            Height of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image height.

          • Left — (Float)

            Left coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image width.

          • Top — (Float)

            Top coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image height.

        • ImageId — (String)

          Unique identifier that Amazon Rekognition assigns to the source image.

        • ExternalImageId — (String)

          Identifier that you assign to all the faces in the input image.

        • Confidence — (Float)

          Confidence level that the bounding box contains a face (and not a different object such as a tree).

      • NextToken — (String)

        If the response is truncated, Amazon Rekognition returns this token that you can use in the subsequent request to retrieve the next set of faces.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

searchFaces(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

For a given input face ID, searches for matching faces in the collection the face belongs to. You get a face ID when you add a face to the collection using the IndexFaces operation. The operation compares the features of the input face with faces in the specified collection.

Note: You can also search faces without indexing faces by using the SearchFacesByImage operation.

The operation response returns an array of faces that match, ordered by similarity score with the highest similarity first. More specifically, it is an array of metadata for each face match that is found. Along with the metadata, the response also includes a confidence value for each face match, indicating the confidence that the specific face matches the input face.

For an example, see example3.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:SearchFaces action.

      Optional value specifying the minimum confidence in the face match to return. For example, don't return any matches where confidence in matches is less than 70%.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • SearchedFaceId — (String)

        ID of the face that was searched for matches in a collection.

      • FaceMatches — (Array<map>)

        An array of faces that matched the input face, along with the confidence in the match.

        • Similarity — (Float)

          Confidence in the match of this face with the input face.

        • Face — (map)

          Describes the face properties such as the bounding box, face ID, image ID of the source image, and external image ID that you assigned.

          • FaceId — (String)

            Unique identifier that Amazon Rekognition assigns to the face.

          • BoundingBox — (map)

            Identifies the bounding box around the object or face. The left (x-coordinate) and top (y-coordinate) are coordinates representing the top and left sides of the bounding box. Note that the upper-left corner of the image is the origin (0,0).

            The top and left values returned are ratios of the overall image size. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the top-left coordinate of the bounding box is 350x50 pixels, the API returns a left value of 0.5 (350/700) and a top value of 0.25 (50/200).

            The width and height values represent the dimensions of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image dimension. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the bounding box width is 70 pixels, the width returned is 0.1.

            Note: The bounding box coordinates can have negative values. For example, if Amazon Rekognition is able to detect a face that is at the image edge and is only partially visible, the service can return coordinates that are outside the image bounds and, depending on the image edge, you might get negative values or values greater than 1 for the left or top values.

          • Confidence — (Float)

            Confidence level that the bounding box contains a face (and not a different object such as a tree).

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

searchFacesByImage(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

For a given input image, first detects the largest face in the image, and then searches the specified collection for matching faces. The operation compares the features of the input face with faces in the specified collection.

Note: To search for all faces in an input image, you might first call the operation, and then use the face IDs returned in subsequent calls to the operation. You can also call the DetectFaces operation and use the bounding boxes in the response to make face crops, which then you can pass in to the SearchFacesByImage operation.

The response returns an array of faces that match, ordered by similarity score with the highest similarity first. More specifically, it is an array of metadata for each face match found. Along with the metadata, the response also includes a similarity indicating how similar the face is to the input face. In the response, the operation also returns the bounding box (and a confidence level that the bounding box contains a face) of the face that Amazon Rekognition used for the input image.

For an example, see example3.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:SearchFacesByImage action.

Calling the searchFacesByImage operation

var params = {
  CollectionId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Image: { /* required */
    Bytes: new Buffer('...') || 'STRING_VALUE',
    S3Object: {
      Bucket: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Name: 'STRING_VALUE',
      Version: 'STRING_VALUE'
    }
  },
  FaceMatchThreshold: 0.0,
  MaxFaces: 0
};
rekognition.searchFacesByImage(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • CollectionId — (String)

      ID of the collection to search.

    • Image — (map)

      Provides the source image either as bytes or an S3 object.

      The region for the S3 bucket containing the S3 object must match the region you use for Amazon Rekognition operations.

      You may need to Base64-encode the image bytes depending on the language you are using and whether or not you are using the AWS SDK. For more information, see example4.

      If you use the Amazon CLI to call Amazon Rekognition operations, passing image bytes using the Bytes property is not supported. You must first upload the image to an Amazon S3 bucket and then call the operation using the S3Object property.

      For Amazon Rekognition to process an S3 object, the user must have permission to access the S3 object. For more information, see manage-access-resource-policies.

      • Bytes — (Buffer, Typed Array, Blob, String)

        Blob of image bytes up to 5 MBs.

      • S3Object — (map)

        Identifies an S3 object as the image source.

        • Bucket — (String)

          Name of the S3 bucket.

        • Name — (String)

          S3 object key name.

        • Version — (String)

          If the bucket is versioning enabled, you can specify the object version.

    • MaxFaces — (Integer)

      Maximum number of faces to return. The operation returns the maximum number of faces with the highest confidence in the match.

    • FaceMatchThreshold — (Float)

      (Optional) Specifies the minimum confidence in the face match to return. For example, don't return any matches where confidence in matches is less than 70%.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • SearchedFaceBoundingBox — (map)

        The bounding box around the face in the input image that Amazon Rekognition used for the search.

        • Width — (Float)

          Width of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image width.

        • Height — (Float)

          Height of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image height.

        • Left — (Float)

          Left coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image width.

        • Top — (Float)

          Top coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image height.

      • SearchedFaceConfidence — (Float)

        The level of confidence that the searchedFaceBoundingBox, contains a face.

      • FaceMatches — (Array<map>)

        An array of faces that match the input face, along with the confidence in the match.

        • Similarity — (Float)

          Confidence in the match of this face with the input face.

        • Face — (map)

          Describes the face properties such as the bounding box, face ID, image ID of the source image, and external image ID that you assigned.

          • FaceId — (String)

            Unique identifier that Amazon Rekognition assigns to the face.

          • BoundingBox — (map)

            Identifies the bounding box around the object or face. The left (x-coordinate) and top (y-coordinate) are coordinates representing the top and left sides of the bounding box. Note that the upper-left corner of the image is the origin (0,0).

            The top and left values returned are ratios of the overall image size. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the top-left coordinate of the bounding box is 350x50 pixels, the API returns a left value of 0.5 (350/700) and a top value of 0.25 (50/200).

            The width and height values represent the dimensions of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image dimension. For example, if the input image is 700x200 pixels, and the bounding box width is 70 pixels, the width returned is 0.1.

            Note: The bounding box coordinates can have negative values. For example, if Amazon Rekognition is able to detect a face that is at the image edge and is only partially visible, the service can return coordinates that are outside the image bounds and, depending on the image edge, you might get negative values or values greater than 1 for the left or top values.
            • Width — (Float)

              Width of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image width.

            • Height — (Float)

              Height of the bounding box as a ratio of the overall image height.

            • Left — (Float)

              Left coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image width.

            • Top — (Float)

              Top coordinate of the bounding box as a ratio of overall image height.

          • ImageId — (String)

            Unique identifier that Amazon Rekognition assigns to the source image.

          • ExternalImageId — (String)

            Identifier that you assign to all the faces in the input image.

          • Confidence — (Float)

            Confidence level that the bounding box contains a face (and not a different object such as a tree).

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.
