MeshGen - Surface meshes from volumetric segmentation data
Supported input formats:
- NIfTI for segmentation volume, with integer elements (8/16/32 bits, signed/unsigned)
- ITK label file (ITK-Snap compatible, does not contain hierarchy)
- ILF - Integrated Label File (MBAT-compatible, hierarchical)
- Brain-Map XML file (ontology from brain-map.org, hierarchical)
When label hierarchy is available, MeshGen can follow containment relations e.g. eliminates generation of extra inner contours around contained labels. The tool can optionally eliminate contained labels if their colour matches with the colour of their parent, e.g. when rendering or not rendering the meshes using their original colours would make no visual difference.
