webKnossos: 3D image annotation, visualization and sharing
webKnossos is an open-source data sharing and annotation platform for tera-scale 2D and 3D image datasets.
The core features of webKnossos are:
- fast 3D data streaming
- share links to specific locations in the data
- uniquely fast skeleton annotation (flight mode) and
- efficient volume annotation
- mesh rendering
- collaboration and sharing tools
webKnossos facilitates image analysis workflows on multi-terabyte datasets, including visualization of raw and multi-modal microscopy data, distributed training data generation and proof-reading of automatic segmentation.
As a scientific resource, webknossos.org serves as a database for published image datasets including their annotations.
