GeoJasper GUI


(aka WallView) Large image viewer for very Large screens

bioView is an open source and cross-platform application intended for biologists to visualize mosaicked EM, Confocal, etc. imagery. It runs on Windows, MacOS X and Linux. It also provides access from the remote controller that simplifies usage of the very large screens e.g. 8000x4800 pixels composed by many monitors. Allows on-the-fly automatic and manual enhancements (levels, brightness, equalization) for large images, dynamic enhancement of visible areas, smooth zoom. All the enhancements are performed with original image data which is converted to display dynamic range on the fly.

Latest version: 1.1.18

bioView was developed at the Center for Bio-Image Informatics, UCSB, it's cross-platform GUI is based on Trolltech Qt 4.6 library and follows it's respective licence. It also uses other free libraries like DSingleApplication, libtiff, libjpeg, libpng and zlib.
