ERVU Tools implementation

The implementation of the first version of the tools focused on developing the first and fourth chains, based on segmentation and building regularization. The overall chain was eventually completed including the previously mentioned algorithms, all of them already developed in BREC and integrated in InterIMAGE as external operators.

The second version of the tools focused on developing the second and third chains, based as for the first version on segmentation and building regularization. As for the first version and the previously mentioned tools, a single processing chain was eventually completed including all the required algorithms, already developed in BREC and integrated in InterIMAGE as external operators.

The third and final version of the tools focused on the optimization of the two developed chains, by allowing the possibility to run the chains in batch mode in InterIMAGE either partially or saving at any step the intermediate results for possible re-use.

Additional documentation

The final presentation of the ERVU tools and their results, provided during TOLOMEO Final Meeting, is available here. Moreover, video tutorials of these tools are also available here and here . Finally, the so called “protocol documents”, showing how to use the tools in practice, can be obtained here and here .

Where can one find and download ERVU Tools?

Since the ERVU tools are available upon integration of the BREC operators within the InterIMAGE software, in order to use them one needs first to download and install InterIMAGE, available here (make sure to download the latest version).

The projects shown in the video tutorials are available for download here .

Specific information about the operators presented in the videos can also be found here .

If one needs help with the InterIMAGE software, there are a mailing list, a wiki and a user guide here.
