SPIERS (Serial Palaeontological Image Editing and Rendering System) is a package of three programs for the reconstruction and analysis of tomographic (serial image) datasets.
SPIERS consists of:
- SPIERSalign - tool to allow manual aligning (registration) of images in serial datasets (not required for CT data), and to crop data to 3D region of interest.
- SPIERSedit - tool to prepare and manipulate (aligned/registered) tomographic datasets for viewing.
- SPIERSview - 3D viewer for SPIERS and VAXML datasets
