Subject: [Slicer] Integrating ITK and VTK: A Survey
Dear 3D Slicer community,
We need your input! We would like community feedback on our plans to create
an enhanced version of the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) <https://vtk.org>
that includes the image segmentation, registration and analysis
capabilities of the Insight Toolkit (ITK) <https://itk.org>
combination of popular open source packages would simplify research and
would also bring extensive image analysis capabilities to ParaView and
other VTK-based applications.
If you are willing, we would greatly appreciate it if you would complete
this 10 question survey:
Please provide your feedback by *Tuesday, September 15, 5pm ET*.
scientific applications such as 3D Slicer, Osirix, ParaView Glance, and
ITKWidgets. These applications demonstrate the power of combining
visualization and image analysis algorithms, particularly when building
models from image data for simulations, applying interactive segmentation
techniques, or visualizing image registration results. However, VTK and ITK
use different data processing pipelines, use different coordinate systems,
and support different data structures and file formats. These differences
confound the development of integrated applications: inducing hard-to-find
errors and requiring re-implementation of data conversion methods.
As we formulate a plan to integrate ITK into VTK, we would like feedback
from the community, so that our work is guided by their current and future
needs and desires.
Thank you and best regards,
– Kitware Developers
