Suggested def: image annotation is the process of defining metadata to a digital image, e.g. defining regions, marking points, creating textual descriptions, attaching tags to image contents. Can be manual or automatic.

ROI 1-click tools for ImageJ/Fiji

Description

This macro toolset offers additional click tools for the rapid annotations of ROI in ImageJ/Fiji.

The ROI 1-click tools can be setup with a predefined shape, and custom actions to perform upon click (Add to ROI Manager, Run Measure, Go to next slice, run a macro command...)

To install in Fiji, just activate the ROI 1-click tools 

MorphoNet

Description

MorphoNet is a novel concept of web-based morphodynamic browser to visualise and interact with complex datasets, with applications in research and teaching. 

MorphoNet offers a comprehensive palette of interactions to explore the structure, dynamics and variability of biological shapes and its connection to genetic expressions. 

By handling a broad range of natural or simulated morphological data, it fills a gap which has until now limited the quantitative understanding of morphodynamics and its genetic underpinnings by contributing to the creation of ever-growing morphological atlases.

VAST Lite

Description

VAST (Volume Annotation and Segmentation Tool) is a utility application for manual annotation of large EM stacks.

General labeling tool, used for a large variety of 3D data sets; electron-microscopic, multi-channel light-microscopic, and Micro-CT data sets as well as videos, and annotating arbitrary structures, regions and locations, depending on the user’s needs.

Ikosa

Description

online image data management system which supports authenticated image upload, cloud-based storage, project-based management and viewing of standard and whole slide images. One can use different annotation tools to highlight important objects or areas within images. It is the first basic version and new features such as sharing for easy collaboration with your colleagues or first automated analysis applications based on artificial intelligence will be added soon.

Ikosa Portal: multi user image data management

Ikosa Prisma: Automated Image Analysis based on deep learning (available in summer 2019)

Free if limited to 2 users and 1 gigabyte, otherwise montly fees.

NeuroMorph

Description

NeuroMorph is a toolset designed to import, analyze, and visualize mesh models in Blender. It has been developed specifically for the morphological analysis of 3D objects derived from serial electron microscopy images of brain tissue, but much of its functionality can be applied to any 3D mesh. These mesh objects can be generated by any 3D image segmentation software, such as ilastik or Fiji

FishInspector

Description

The software FishInspector provides automatic feature detections in images of zebrafish embryos (body size, eye size, pigmentation). It is Matlab-based and provided as a Windows executable (no matlab installation needed).

The recent version requires images of a lateral position. It is important that the position is precise since deviation may confound with feature annotations. Images from any source can be used. However, depending on the image properties parameters may have to be adjusted. Furthermore, images obtained with normal microscope and not using an automated position system with embryos in glass capillaries require conversion using a KNIME workflow (the workflow is available as well). As a result of the analysis the software provides JSON files that contain the coordinates of the features. Coordinates are provided for eye, fish contour, notochord , otoliths, yolk sac, pericard and swimbladder. Furthermore, pigment cells in the notochord area are detected. Additional features can be manually annotated. It is the aim of the software to provide the coordinates, which may then be analysed subsequently to identify and quantify changes in the morphology of zebrafish embryos.

SuRVoS

Description

SuRVoS: Super-Region Volume Segmentation workbench

A volume is first partitioned into Super-Regions (superpixels or supervoxels) and then interactively segmented by the user providing training annotations. SuRVoS can then learn from and extend the annotations to the whole volume.
