A toolkit for extracting particle data from microscopy images.

Project description

# ImageDataExtractor

ImageDataExtractor is a toolkit for the automatic extraction of microscopy images.

## Features

  • Automatic detection and download of microscopy images from scientific articles
  • HTML and XML document format support
  • High-throughput capabilities
  • Direct extraction from image files
  • PNG, GIF, JPEG, TIFF image format support

## Installation

It is best to install ImageDataExtractor using pip, but it is also possible to directly install from source. See below for installation instructions.

__NOTE: The current version of IDE uses Tesseract 3. The source code can be downloaded [here]( and instructions on how to compile can be found [here](

NOTE: It is advised that all installations of ImageDataExtractor are run inside a virtual environment. Click [here]( for more information.

### Installing with pip

To install with pip, simply run:

pip install ImageDataExtractor

Then download the necessary data files to run ChemDataExtractor-IDE by running:

cde data download

### Installing from source

#### Install ChemDataExtractor-IDE

In order to use ImageDataExtractor first install the bespoke version of ChemDataExtractor, [ChemDataExtractor-IDE](

Clone the repository by running:

$ git clone

and install with:

$ python install

Then download the required machine learning models with:

$ cde data download

See for more details

#### Install ImageDataExtractor

Now to install ImageDataExtractor, clone the repository with:

$ git clone

Then create a wheel file by running:

$ python bdist_wheel

You may have to run `pip install wheel` if this fails.

Then install using pip:

$ pip install dist/ImageDataExtractor-0.0.1-py3-none-any.whl

## Running the code

__Full documentation on running the code can be found at []( .__

Open a python terminal and run

>>> import imagedataextractor as ide

Then run:

>>> ide.extract_document(<path/to/document>)

to automatically identify and extract the images from a document. Full details on supported input and output formats can be found at our [website]( .
