QGoImageCompare : Image Compare subproject


  This application is part of the GoFigure project (see, whose primary goal is the automatic segmentation
of nuclei and cell membranes and in temporally tracking them amidst cell
division to create lineages.

  Using ITK, VTK and Qt libraries, we developed an application for 2D and 3D
image visualization and comparison. We provide a set of classes for simple
integration in a program, an executable for a command line use, and a
pretty-printer for visual debugging in GDB.  In case of a 3D dataset, the
visualization is rendered with a variant of the vtkINRIA engine.

  The GDB pretty-printer requires the setup described at
