JAVA: Plugins for ImageJ 
JAVA classes are usually meant to be integrated into the publicdomain software ImageJ. 

Drop Shape Analysis. New method based on Bspline snakes (active contours) for measuring highaccuracy contact angles of sessile drops. 

Extended Depth of Focus. The extended depth of focus is a imageprocessing method to obtain in focus microscopic images of 3D objects and organisms. We freely provide a software as a plugin of ImageJ to produce this infocus image and the corresponding height map of zstack images. 

Fractional spline wavelet transform. This JAVA package computes the fractional spline wavelet transform of a signal or an image and its inverse. 

Image Differentials. This JAVA class for ImageJ implements 6 operations based on the spatial differentiation of an image. It computes the pixelwise gradient, Laplacian, and Hessian. The class exports public methods for horizontal and vertical gradient and Hessian operations (for those programmers who wish to use them in their own code). 

MosaicJ. This JAVA class for ImageJ performs the assembly of a mosaic of overlapping individual images, or tiles. It provides a semiautomated solution where the initial rough positioning of the tiles must be performed by the user, and where the final delicate adjustments are performed by the plugin. 

NeuronJ. This Java class for ImageJ was developed to facilitate the tracing and quantification of neurites in twodimensional (2D) fluorescence microscopy images. The tracing is done interactively based on the specification of end points; the optimal path is determined on the fly from the optimization of a cost function using Dijkstra’s shortestpath algorithm. The procedure also takes advantage of an improved ridge detector implemented by means of a steerable filterbank. 

PixFRET. The ImageJ plugin PixFRET allows to visualize the FRET between two partners in a cell or in a cell population by computing pixel by pixel the images of a sample acquired in three channels. 

Point Picker. This JAVA class for ImageJ allows the user to pick some points in an image and to save the list of pixel coordinates as a text file. It is also possible to read back the text file so as to restore the display of the coordinates. 

Resize. This ImageJ plugin changes the size of an image to any dimension using either interpolation, or leastsquares approximation. 

SheppLogan. The purpose of this ImageJ plugin is to generate sampled versions of the SheppLogan phantom. Their size can be tuned. 

Snakuscule. The purpose of this ImageJ plugin is to detect circular bright blobs in images and to quantify them. It allows one to keep record of their location and size. 

SpotTracker Single particle tracking over noisy images sequence. SpotTracker is a robust and fast computational procedure for tracking fluorescent markers in timelapse microscopy. The algorithm is optimized for finding the timetrajectory of single particles in very noisy image sequences. The optimal trajectory of the particle is extracted by applying a dynamic programming optimization procedure. 

StackReg. This JAVA class for ImageJ performs the recursive registration (alignment) of a stack of images, so that each slice acts as template for the next one. This plugin requires that TurboReg is installed. 

Steerable feature detectors. This ImageJ plugin implements a series of optimized contour and ridge detectors. The filters are steerable and are based on the optimization of a Cannylike criterion. They have a better orientation selectivity than the classical gradient or Hessianbased detectors. 

TurboReg. This JAVA class for ImageJ performs the registration (alignment) of two images. The registration criterion is leastsquares. The geometric deformation model can be translational, conformal, affine, and bilinear. 

UnwarpJ. This JAVA class for ImageJ performs the elastic registration (alignment) of two images. The registration criterion includes a vectorspline regularization term to constrain the deformation to be physically realistic. The deformation model is made of cubic splines, which ensures smoothness and versatility. 
ANSI C 
Most often, the ANSIC pieces of code are not a complete program, but rather an element in a library of routines. 

Affine transformation. This ANSIC routine performs an affine transformation on an image or a volume. It proceeds by resampling a continuous spline model. 

Registration. This ANSIC routine performs the registration (alignment) of two images or two volumes. The criterion is leastsquares. The geometric deformation model can be translational, rotational, and affine. 

Shifted linear interpolation. This ANSIC program illustrates how to perform shifted linear interpolation. 

Spline interpolation. This ANSIC program illustrates how to perform spline interpolation, including the computation of the socalled spline coefficients. 

Spline pyramids. This software package implements the basic REDUCE and EXPAND operators for the reduction and enlargement of signals and images by factors of two based on polynomial spline representation of the signal. 
Others 

Esplines. A Mathematica package is made available for the symbolic computation of exponential spline related quantities: Bsplines, Gram sequence, Green function, and localization filter. 

Fractional spline wavelet transform. A MATLAB package is available for computing the fractional spline wavelet transform of a signal or an image and its inverse. 

Fractional spline and fractals. A MATLAB package is available for computing the fractional smoothing spline estimator of a signal and for generating fBms (fractional Brownian motion). This spline estimator provides the minimum mean squares error reconstruction of a fBm (or 1/ftype signal) corrupted by additive noise. 

Hexsplines : a novel spline family for hexagonal lattices. A Maple 7.0 worksheet is available for obtaining the analytical formula of any hexspline (any order, regular, nonregular, derivatives, and so on). 

MLTL deconvolution : This Matlab package implements the MultiLevel Thresholded Landweber (MLTL) algorithm, an accelerated version of the TL algorithm that was specifically developped for deconvolution problems with a waveletdomain regularization. 

OWT SURELET Denoising : This Matlab package implements the interscale orthonormal wavelet thresholding algorithm based on the SURELET (Stein’s Unbiased Risk Estimate/Linear Expansion of Thresholds) principle. 

WSPM : Waveletbased statistical parametric mapping, a toolbox for SPM that incorporates powerful wavelet processing and spatial domain statistical testing for the analysis of fMRI data.
