What is Minerva?

Minerva is a suite of software tools for tissue atlases and digital pathology that enables interactive viewing and fast sharing of large image data. It comprises of Minerva Author, a tool that lets you easily create and annotate images, and Minerva Story, a narrative image viewer for web hosting. This is the headquarters for Minerva documentation where you will find information for users, viewers, developers, and anyone interested in Minerva. Here, you will find the source code, instructions for using Minerva Author, hosting your Minerva Story on the web, and updates on our latest releases and bug fixes.


How does Minerva work?

Minerva follows a client-server model for delivering content. Images in OME-TIFF or SVS format are imported into Minerva Author where a user sets image settings and annotations. Minerva Author then renders image pyramids and a configuration file that is read by Minerva Story to deliver the content to viewers.
