ITK Data

We had a tcon on December 16th.

Summary here:

Data Collection

Migration Guide Process

Simple ITK

  • Code generations
    • Using Lua and JSON
  • Interfacing to
    • ImageJ / Fiji
    • CellProfiler



Dan and Mathieu to report

Image Registration Revision

  • Start sending patches to Gerrit
    • New CompositeTransform class is underway
    • New DeformationFieldTransform class is underway
    • Transform IO will be adjusted accordingly

Level Set

Time Stamp Proposal


  • Had a Tcon about modularization on Dec 3 [1].

The initial partition seems to be good to start with.

  • Brad King worked on cmake packaging prototypes
  • Xiaoxiao Liu (Kitware) is working on scripts to migrate monolithic ITK to modular ITK

TIFF Update

  • Brad King addressed the int issues
  • Currently at
 git fetch git:// +libtiff4beta6:libtiff4beta6

Sequestered Reference Applications

We have already made significant changes, and they are not being recorded yet. It is time to setup these reference applications.


  • V3D Plugins
  • Slicer
  • VV
  • Insight Applications now submitting
    • Broken: need to use it as an example for the Migration Guide.

Development Versions following ITKv4


  • IGSTK, after SPIE'11 (IGSTK5.0)
  • Insight Applications (ITKApps from v3.20)
  • ITK tests from v3.20


ITK Readers for Microscopy formats

  • There's a need for readers in the microscopy community in order to be able to use ITK
    • Zeiss (LSM and ZVI)
    • Leica (LIF)
    • Olympus (OIB)
    • Nikon ()
  • BioFormats has readers and example files for these. It is Java with C++ bindings for ITK, BUT it's GPL.
