Multi-target multi-camera tracking (MTMCT) plays an important role in intelligent video analysis, surveillance video retrieval, and other application scenarios. Nowadays, the deep-learning-based MTMCT has been the mainstream and has achieved fascinating improvements regarding tracking accuracy and efficiency. However, according to our investigation, the lacking of datasets focusing on real-world application scenarios limits the further improvements for current learning-based MTMCT models. Specifically, the learning-based MTMCT models training by common datasets usually cannot achieve satisfactory results in real-world application scenarios. Motivated by this, this paper presents a semi-automatic data annotation system to facilitate the real-world MTMCT dataset establishment. The proposed system first employs a deep-learning-based single-camera trajectory generation method to automatically extract trajectories from surveillance videos. Subsequently, the system provides a recommendation list in the following manual cross-camera trajectory matching process. The recommendation list is generated based on side information, including camera location, timestamp relation, and background scene. In the experimental stage, extensive results further demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed system.
