Map Manager is software to annotate and analyze image volume time-series


Features

  • Track 3D annotations in time-series images including dendritic spines, axonal boutons, cell bodies, and vascular branch points.
  • Semi-automatically identifies corresponding annotations between time-points.
  • Automatically aligns images between time-points.
  • Designed to work with any 3D/2D image volume including in vivo, ex vivo, and fixed tissue.

Analysis

  • Track the dynamics of 3D annotations including persistence, addition, subtraction, and transient.
  • Trajectory analysis to track the motility of annotations.
  • ROI based neuronal spine intensity analysis.
  • Please see the gallery for screenshots and movies of Map Manager in action.

Getting started

Extending Map Manager analysis

  • Map Manager - Matlab - A Matlab class library to load, analyze, and plot Map Manager files. Allows for arbitrary new analysis to be easily scripted.
  • PyMapManager - A Python package to load, analyze, and plot Map Manager files. Allows for arbitrary new analysis to be easily scripted.
