Maxima finding algorithm recreated from implementation in Fiji(ImageJ)
This is a re-implementation of the java plugin written by Michael Schmid and Wayne Rasband for ImageJ. The original java code source can be found in: https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/developer/source/ij/plugin/filter/MaximumFinder.java.html
This implementation remains faithful to the original implementation but is not 100% optimised. The java version is faster but this could be alleviated by compiling c code for parts of the code. This script is simply to provide the functionality of the ImageJ find maxima algorithm to individuals writing pure python script.
