CATMAID: collaborative annotation toolkit for massive amounts of image data


Saalfeld, S; Cardona, A; Hartenstein, V; Tomancak, P (2009). CATMAID: collaborative annotation toolkit for massive amounts of image data. Bioinformatics, 25(15):1984-1986.

Abstract

Summary: High-resolution, three-dimensional (3D) imaging of large biological specimens generates massive image datasets that are difficult to navigate, annotate and share effectively. Inspired by online mapping applications like GoogleMaps™, we developed a decentralized web interface that allows seamless navigation of arbitrarily large image stacks. Our interface provides means for online, collaborative annotation of the biological image data and seamless sharing of regions of interest by bookmarking. The CATMAID interface enables synchronized navigation through multiple registered datasets even at vastly different scales such as in comparisons between optical and electron microscopy.
