Tile images next to each other with the mosaic tool

Tile images next to each other with the mosaic tool With BioVis3D you can compose a slice with multiple images. This is very useful when the acquisition device does not capture the full image in one shot or because you need to use multiple fields of view (zoom in or out) in different areas of the slice.

The Mosaic tool allows translation and rotatation of the pictures that comprise these compound slices to build a single coherent image of the section.
 

Mosaic images

When the acquisition device does not capture the full image of a section in one shot, it is necessary to take several overlapped pictures of the same slice.

In this case, BioVis3D rebuilds the image of the section from that set of pictures. This process is performed using a set of tools to move and rotate the images while adjusting the transparency level in order to focus on the overlapping section.

The images that comprise a section may be taken with different resolutions. BioVis3D handles multi-resolution images and shows a consistent view of the full section to the end user.

Do it yourself with BioVis3D

  1. Store all images of each mosaic in a different folder
  2. Add these folders to the sequence
  3. Open the slice that contains the mosaic
  4. Select the Edit Mosaic Tool
  5. Adjust the transparency level in order to view the overlapping areas to detect misalignments
  6. Move and rotate the slice using the mouse or the arrow keys
  7. Optionally add other images that comprise the mosaic
  8. Zoom in and out as desired for better detail
