AVW Library ( A Visualization Workshop)

AVW Library

The AVW  Library allows users to develop exciting new add-on modules to Analyze using an image library of more than 600 optimized image processing functions. To see the power of AVW, you need only look as far as the Analyze software package itself, which is built on AVW.

The imaging functions that comprise AVW permit full exploration and analysis of multidimensional and multimodal biomedical image data sets. The software facilitates the development and implementation of advanced imaging algorithms and techniques and easy integration of these into specific applications solutions by imaging software developers. The extensive functionality and interactive speed of this software are unequivocally the key features which distinguish Analyze from other image processing and visualization packages.

The functions that make up AVW are accessible to software developers to build advanced image-based application solutions. While only one linkable library is provided, the functionality in AVW can be separated into eight distinct functional groups as seen by this table. Select a heading for more detailed description of the functional group.
