  7. Presentation/Curtis: who/what is fiji

    • LOCI philosophy is to be as interoperable as possible
    • What's the difference between Fiji and ImageJ2?
      • ImageJ2:
        • goal is to integrate: imageJ, Fiji, visbio, slim plotter, TRI2, FARSIGHT, ITK, CellProfilers
        • core image processing library for Fiji
        • BSD licensing
      • Fiji:
        • is a bundle of imageJ with some plugins/marcos/scripts included
        • Focus on segemtation & registration
        • additional tools to facility scripting, tutorial maker, updating
        • goal: "easy way to develop novel algorithms"
        • fully GPL
        • scripting with 7 languages (Jython, Java, Groovy, etc).
        • tutorial maker. google for: imagej+fiji
    • imglib as data model for imagej, need to add metadata/introspection
    • itk/improving wrapitk and its templates
    • Q: (Andrew) ImageJ2 splits gui & core...?
      • A: architectural separation, yes. But pointing most people at Fiji (more plugins)
    • Q: (Jason) Where should OME be paying attention/adopting/etc.?
      • A: lots of overlap (and reuse)
      • Lot of display stuff. Insight could leverage use that
      • Concerned: seems impossible to always take advantage of each other's work
      • There's the server- v. client- rendering issue
      • Then there's the client- v. server- scripting issue
      • We'll make them interoperable; but we have to keep re-assessing
    • Looking now v. waiting
      • Will mature, but don't want to do things in parallel
      • Read over the ImageJ blog presentation
      • Curtis will send out a more technical list
      • Reading through the trac tickets
    • Perhaps Fiji can present at Paris
      • Some sort of 'hackathon'/gathering event with Fiji/OMERO would be valuable
    • Q: (Donald) What are the next steps? Overlaps, etc.
      • Fiji has no aims page. Focused on automated segementation & registration
      • We should probably align our ROI models in anticiptation of cooperation
        • ImageJ ROI model has some deficiencies, would like to adopt the OMERO model
        • OMERO model needs some changes to meet multi-dimensionality requirements for ImageJ
    • Q: timeline for the AWT refactoring? (Chris)
      • ~ a year.

# Action Items # - Chris: See why Curtis' & Carlos' passwords aren't working - Curtis: Send out a techincal list of ImageJ/Fiji functionality that could be useful for OMERO - Everyone: Be ready for Thursday! Go through and move tickets to future if not doable in the next month
