== Description ==
"Data Science for Health (DS4H) Image Alignment " is a user-friendly tool freely provided as an ImageJ/Fiji plugin developed to align biological .  With DS4H Image Alignment images can be easily aligned (i.e. co-registered) by manually specifying defining with a few clicks some well visible reference marks.Warping of the single original images is done according to a The implemented least-squares method that automatically approximates the solution of the mathematical overdetermined system, so to define the registration matrix then used for aligning the different images.It also considers rotations and scale changes in case of object dilation/shrink. Finally, it provides an iterative subroutine for a fine alignment, to easily reach a very good image co-registration quality. DS4H Image Alignment has been implemented in Java as a plugin for ImageJ/Fiji. It works with “.svs” files, but also all the medical imaging formats included in the [[Bio-formats]] library. DS4H Image Alignment is freely available at: [], together with a sample dataset and a video tutorial.   == Contact Us == The Data Science for Health (DS4H) group:

All the most common biological image formats (like .tiff, .svs, .ndpi2, etc.) are supported and openable directly from the plugin.
This has been possible thanks to the use of the [[Bio-formats]] library.
