The BioTrack Pack is Georgia Tech's growing collection of free, open-source, simple software tools for automating behavioral analysis workflows.
Currently we support Ubuntu 12.04 environments. Ubuntu is selected since it is freely available, and easily installed in parallel with Mac or Windows. In the future we hope to also have experimental support for software directly in Mac or Windows environments.
There are three methods of obtaining and running our software:
Downloading the Binaries Download and run our latest official releases quickly here
Compile from Source Code Power users may want to view our source code and compile it themselves
System Image If you are planning on installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu anyway, we provide an image of the Operating System with our software pre-installed, and the developing environment already setup.
Get really good tracks of multiple agents undergoing rigid 2D translations and rotations
Create a clean background for subtraction
Create annotated video files from processed tracking data
Create model files for MultiTracking
We support our programs running on Ubuntu 12.04. This is a freely available operating system that you can quickly install to any computer. You can either install Ubuntu on its own as a Dual-Boot which will give you the maximum performance of your software, or you can virtually install Ubuntu inside either Windows or Mac via a free program called VirtualBox.
Install Ubuntu Dual-Boot
Install Ubuntu Inside Mac or Win using Virtualbox
BTF Tracking Format
BTF is a simple flat file format for recording tracking information which all of the programs and utilities in the BioTrack Pack use. For more information, see this page.
