What is Vaa3D: Vaa3D is a free and open source cross-platform (Mac, Linux, and Windows) tool for visualizing large-scale (gigabytes, and 64-bit data) 3D image stacks and various surface data. It is also a container of powerful modules for 3D image analysis (cell segmentation, neuron tracing, brain registration, annotation, quantitative measurement and statistics, etc) and data management.
What is the workshop for: This will be a hands-on tutorial (remember to bring your laptop). The following functions of Vaa3D will be demonstrated in an interactive manner.
* Introduction: from 2D to 3D visualization.
● Multidimensional medical and microscopy image visualization: visualize a 3D multicolor image, visualize a 5D image data set such as a series of multicolor 3-D images.
● Turning the computer mouse into a 3D Virtual Finger: 3D point pin-pointing algorithm (PPA) and 3D curve drawing algorithm (CDA)
● Generate, quantify, measure and annotate 3D surface meshes.
● Plugin generation: how to write a simple plugin to instantly manipulate a 3D image
● Stitching of large-scale images
● Visualization of terabyte-scale 3-5D images
● Automatic neuron reconstruction: semi-automatic and fully automatic neuron reconstruction for regular and large-scale images.
