Fiji is an image processing package. It can be described as a "batteries-included" distribution of ImageJ (and ImageJ2), bundling Java, Java3D and a lot of plugins organized into a coherent menu structure. Fiji compares to ImageJ as Ubuntu compares to Linux.
The main focus of Fiji is to assist research in life sciences.
- For users - Fiji is easy to install and has an automatic update function, bundles a lot of plugins and offers comprehensive documentation.
- Developing Fiji - Fiji is an open source project hosted in a Git version control repository, with access to the source code of all internals, libraries and plugins, and eases the development and scripting of plugins.
The Fiji project is driven by a strong desire to improve the tools available for life sciences to process and analyze data. To this end, Fiji collaborates closely with the following projects:
- 2018-03-16 - Classifying microscope image focus quality with deep learning
- 2018-01-11 - Announcing the new Scientific Community Image Forum
- 2017-12-29 - ImageJ2 and Fiji updated - now with search bar!
- 2017-12-04 - Fiji + KNIP hackathon
- 2017-11-29 - ImageJ2 paper published in BMC Bioinformatics
