SOFIMA (Scalable Optical Flow-based Image Montaging and Alignment) is a tool for stitching, aligning and warping large 2d, 3d and 4d microscopy datasets.
This is not an officially supported Google product.
SOFIMA is implemented purely in Python, and does not require a build step. To install it directly from the repository, run:
pip install git+https://github.com/google-research/sofima
SOFIMA uses optical flow regularized with an elastic mesh to establish maps between data in different coordinate systems. Both the flow estimator as well as the mesh solver are implemented in JAX and will automatically take advantage of GPU acceleration if the hardware if available.
A core data structure used throughout the project is a coordinate map stored as a dense array of relative offsets (see the module docstring in map_utils.py for details). Among other uses, this is the representation of the estimated flow fields and the mesh node positions.
