OME Files C++
OME Files is a standalone C++ library for reading and writing life sciences image file formats. This project has been archived while seeking further funding.
**Independent development is taking place under https://gitlab.com/codelibre/ome-files **
OME Files' primary purpose is to convert proprietary microscopy data into an open standard called the OME data model, particularly into the OME-TIFF file format. See the statement of purpose for a thorough explanation and rationale. OME Files provides support for reading and writing files using the OME-TIFF file format and for the OME metadata model which is the basis for the file format.
OME-TIFF using the OME metadata model.
Many software packages use Bio-Formats to read and write open microscopy formats such as OME-TIFF in Java programs. OME Files provides equivalent functionality for C++ programs.
You can use OME Files C++ to easily support OME-TIFF in your software.
