Split image dataset into train-test datasets

Issue

So I have a main folder which contains sub-folders which in turn contains images for the dataset as follows.

-main_db

—CLASS_1

—–img_1

—–img_2

—–img_3

—–img_4

—CLASS_2

—–img_1

—–img_2

—–img_3

—–img_4

—CLASS_3

—–img_1

—–img_2

—–img_3

—–img_4

I need to split this dataset into 2 parts i.e Train data(70%) and Test data(30%). Below is the hierarchy I want to achieve

-main_db

—training_data

—–CLASS_1

——-img_1

——-img_2

——-img_3

——-img_4

—CLASS_2

——-img_1

——-img_2

——-img_3

——-img_4

—testing_data

—–CLASS_1

——-img_5

——-img_6

——-img_7

——-img_8

—CLASS_2

——-img_5

——-img_6

——-img_7

——-img_8

Any help appreciated. Thanks

I have tried this module. But this is not working for me. This module is not being imported at all.

This is exactly what I want.

Solution

This should do it. It will calculate how many images are in each folder and then splits them accordingly, saving test data in a different folder with the same structure.
Save the code in main.py file and run command:

python3 main.py ----data_path=/path1 --test_data_path_to_save=/path2 --train_ratio=0.7

import shutil
import os
import numpy as np
import argparse

def get_files_from_folder(path):

    files = os.listdir(path)
    return np.asarray(files)

def main(path_to_data, path_to_test_data, train_ratio):
    # get dirs
    _, dirs, _ = next(os.walk(path_to_data))

    # calculates how many train data per class
    data_counter_per_class = np.zeros((len(dirs)))
    for i in range(len(dirs)):
        path = os.path.join(path_to_data, dirs[i])
        files = get_files_from_folder(path)
        data_counter_per_class[i] = len(files)
    test_counter = np.round(data_counter_per_class * (1 - train_ratio))

    # transfers files
    for i in range(len(dirs)):
        path_to_original = os.path.join(path_to_data, dirs[i])
        path_to_save = os.path.join(path_to_test_data, dirs[i])

        #creates dir
        if not os.path.exists(path_to_save):
            os.makedirs(path_to_save)
        files = get_files_from_folder(path_to_original)
        # moves data
        for j in range(int(test_counter[i])):
            dst = os.path.join(path_to_save, files[j])
            src = os.path.join(path_to_original, files[j])
            shutil.move(src, dst)


def parse_args():
  parser = argparse.ArgumentParser(description="Dataset divider")
  parser.add_argument("--data_path", required=True,
    help="Path to data")
  parser.add_argument("--test_data_path_to_save", required=True,
    help="Path to test data where to save")
  parser.add_argument("--train_ratio", required=True,
    help="Train ratio - 0.7 means splitting data in 70 % train and 30 % test")
  return parser.parse_args()

if __name__ == "__main__":
  args = parse_args()
  main(args.data_path, args.test_data_path_to_save, float(args.train_ratio))
