Source Code

The algorithms in our books are implemented in Java and ImageJ which is a small, simple and flexible environment for digital image processing, originally conceived (and still being developed) by Wayne Rasband at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). This software requires a Java runtime installation (version 1.8 or higher).

Source Code Repository

The complete source code for our books plus additional examples, demos and tools are available in a common GitHub repository:

https://github.com/imagingbook/imagingbook-public

Instructions on how to install and use this software can all be found there.

Updates

This source code is being continuously updated, enhanced and adapted to newer releases of Java and ImageJ. Thus some of the original code examples in the printed texts may have been replaced by newer and improved versions without notice, although we attempt to preserve the original functionality as much as possible. This may affect class structures, method parameters and coding practices in general. The API thus cannot be guaranteed to be stable and may be incompatible with older code.

Source code for previous book editions

Source code for previous book editions is not being maintained in separate repositories any longer but has been merged into the current code base and updated to the most recent versions.
