The Startup Screen

The first thing you see when starting ilastik is the startup screen. It allows to

  • Create a new project (A)
  • Open an existing project (B)
  • Open a recently used project (C)

When creating a new project (A) the user can choose from several different project types:

  • Pixel Classification can be used to interactively label images and to obtain a pixel prediction on unlabeled images.

  • Carving is useful for segmenting objects in images which cannot be discriminated from each other by appearance but which have a visible boundary.

    • Carving from pixel predictions is a workflow where a pixel prediction of an object boundary is used to segment objects.
  • Tracking Workflow allows tracking of a large and unknown number of (possible divisible) objects with similar appearance in 2d+t and 3d+t

  • Object classification allows to train and classify already segmented objects in an image using object level features such as size, orientation, average color etc.

    • from pixel classification use a pixel level classifier as first stage to obtain objects
    • from binary image use a binary object mask image as object input
    • from prediction image use a probability map as object input
