Xuv package for Imaris (http://www.xuvtools.org/)
Xuv tools is a free, open source and fully automated 3D stitching software for confocal microscopy images.
The goal of XuvTools is to provide tools, that combine multiple microscopic recordings to obtain a larger field of view (“stitching”) and a higher dynamic range (“HDR” recombination), or better resolution (multi view reconstruction) when working with multiple 3D confocal image stacks. XuvTools runs on Windows Linux and Mac computers and supports 32 and 64 bit operating systems (64 bit preferred).
You can find our paper on stitching here:
We also presented stitching with XuvTools with the following posters:
