Description VolumeRover (a.k.a VolRover) is interactive multi-purpose image processing software developed at CVC. It can visualize three dimensional imaging data of any size (as big as terabyte) in a commodity PC or workstation and additionally supports the following image processing operations.
Image Contrast Enhancement
Symmetry Detection (for Virus Maps)
Boundary-free Image Skeletonization
VolRover provides a user interface to a number of CVC software packages including Segmentation, Contrast Enhancement, and Motif Elucidation.
