Usage is for searching bioimage analysis tools (functions, plugins, toolbox, scripts, macros, instructions). Please use the search box in the sidebar. You could narrow your search to components, workflows, sample images, software packages or languages. Your search term could be any keywords that you are interested in.

At the moment, biological terms might not have many hits, as we still need to tag pages, and your contribution by tagging will be a big help!


We use following terms for categorizing bioimage analysis tools.

  • Components
    • Implementation of an image processing / analysis algorithm
    • e.g. A single menu item in image processing software
    • e.g. A plugin / module / add-ons. For plugins that bundles multiple tools, each tool will be the component and the plugin as a whole cannot be a component. Please place the plugin as "Software / Library".
    • e.g. A class in image processing library.
  • Workflow
    • A series of image processing using several **components to start with image data as input and outputs either processed image or numerical values.
    • e.g. a script
    • e.g. a detailed step-by-step instruction.
  • Software / Library
    • A package of components.
  • Sample Data

    • In general, sample image data. It could be none-image if needed.
    • Uploaded image is strongly recommended to have details of the object in image, capture conditions e.g. microscope, objective, probe details, scale and so on.
    • Better be with explicit licensing condition.
  • Details on our current nomenclature is explained in here
