MINC tools



Hi all,

The Debian packages for MINC have just been accepted into the archive.

The MINC tools is a suite of command line tools for dealing with
N-dimensional data common in medical imaging.  These tools will be of
interest for researchers who need to manipulate data: you can do
anything from simple statistics (mincstat) to arbitrary mathematical
expressions on voxel data across any number of input files (minccalc).

I plan to also package the two interactive display programs that operate
on MINC files.

These tools are based around a common MINC file format that is based
on NetCDF so it has the advantages of being portable, open, and
extensible.  The format handles data of arbitrary dimension, e.g. 2D
or 3D for MRI or CT, 4D for a time-series fMRI data set, etc.  The
data can be scalar or vector-valued.  In addition, the MINC format
stores the orientation of the data in a "world" coordinate frame, so
you can work either in voxel coordinates or world coordinates; conversion
between the two is handled by the library.

Cheers,
-Steve

Subject: minc_1.0-1_i386.changes is NEW
Date: Mon, 29 Jul 2002 16:27:19 -0400

(new) libminc-dev_1.0-1_i386.deb optional science
MNI medical image format library
 This package contains the library and headers for libminc and
 libvolume_io.
 .
 The Minc file format is a highly flexible medical image file format
 built on top of the NetCDF generalized data format. The format is
 simple, self-describing, extensible, portable and N-dimensional, with
 programming interfaces for both low-level data access and high-level
 volume manipulation. On top of the libraries is a suite of generic
 image-file manipulation tools. The format, libraries and tools are
 designed for use in a medical-imaging research environment : they are
 simple and powerful and make no attempt to provide a pretty interface
 to users.

Announcing to debian-devel-changes@lists.debian.org
Closing bugs: 153629 


Your package contains new components which requires manual editing of
the override file.  It is ok otherwise, so please be patient.  New
packages are usually added to the override file about once a week.

You may have gotten the distribution wrong.  You'll get warnings above
if files already exist in other distributions.
