Retina Editions (Online Streaming)We provide two special editions based on KNOSSOS 3.4.2 that stream the retina datasets e2006 and ek0563 over the internet. These versions do not require an installation and do not require Python. Both datasets use image compression for online streaming.
To run these special versions, download and extract one of these archives:
Source code and bug trackerThe source code, including some compile-instructions for Windows, is available at http://code.google.com/p/knossos-skeletonizer/. Please report all issues with KNOSSOS in the Google Code issue tracker.
Stack generationKNOSSOS expects image data to be in a special cube format (see online documentation for details). This MATLAB™ code can be used to generate the appropriate data format from TIFF files.
DatasetsExample data stacks in the KNOSSOS format can be found here: small (54 MB), large (400 MB).
After starting KNOSSOS, press "+" and select the "e1088_mag1" folder. Then copy the following coordinates: 829, 1090, 832 (CTRL-c) and paste them into KNOSSOS ("paste" button at the top right in the main KNOSSOS window). This takes you directly to the center of the data stacks.
