Napari plugin for viewing Brain Image Library datasets
View datasets archived at the Brain Image Library.
**NOTE: This plugin is under early development. Currently, only a subset of single-channel, fMOST datasets which include projections are available to view. An example can be found here.
- Multiscale Rendering
- In datasets that include multiple resolution representations of the data, each resolution can be combined to improve the speed of browsing and user experience. An example of a dataset with multiple resolution projections can be found here.
- All datasets included in the current release of napari-bil-data-viewer use multi-resolution datasets.
- 3D rendering of whole datasets. The lowest resolution is used for rendering. Currently, this is a limitation imposed by napari.
- The plugin does NOT require a BIL account as datasets are already accessible via https.
Known Issues / limitations
- Currently the only datasets that are available are those which have been manually selected by the developers. If you would like a specific dataset to be included please consider adding the dataset(s) to the dataset_info.py file and submitting a pull request.
