Hi all, Thanks for everyone who participated in the survey. While there is quite a bit of interest for using 3D volumetric data for many different biology questions, people seem to be frustrated with the most mundane of tasks: Getting the data into a format and a software that will eventually let them collect morphometric data seems to be a major challenge. This really surprised me. That was certainly an issue 15 years ago, but it shouldn’t be the case anymore.
I just started a blog (https://blogs.uw.edu/maga/) based on the SOPs of my lab and tutorials I used to train students. Currently it has three entries: 1. An introduction to the open-source 3D Slicer imaging suite, it is capabilities, and how to find help about it. 2. A long tutorial of working with data from DigiMorph (Data import, linear measurements, landmarking, 3d visualization, down sampling, and segmentation) 3. A short tutorial on getting data from MorphoSource into Slicer and how to fix DICOM issues. They are not in the most appealing format, as I copied and pasted from existing documents, but I think they are functional enough to get an interested party started with his/her project. I did try to put links to the online documentation of every module mentioned in tutorials. If something is not clear from my description, you can go the source and check it out its details. Feel free to comment and post specific questions on the blog, so that other can benefit from it. I would be particularly interested in knowing other imaging repos that cannot be imported into Slicer with the methods described in these tutorials. I will try to respond as soon as I can. Hope this helps some.

Should only take 2 minutes. Survey will be open till March 8th 11PM, PST. Feedback will be useful to identify the audience and sponsors for a potential a short course or a workshop. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=W9229i_wGkSZoBYqxQYL0lnYz8n5LvRInWGoz5_LAC1URTZOTzdKMllOM1EyVVFZSkI2MlBRVkpKUC4u Best, M -- MORPHMET may be accessed via its webpage at http://www.morphometrics.org --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "MORPHMET" group.
