(latest version is
0.10.0.dev, 10th January 2016 - release
notes HERE -)
simple command-line utility for
converting between most biological
neuron 3D morphology formats (including: all Neurolucida formats; SWC;
NeuronHOC; Genesis; Imaris, NeuroZoom;
Eutectics and many others ).
All users are advised to check the generated output data before making further use of it (the NLMorphologyViewer is usually a suitable tool). Although import and export algorithms are well tested and generally reliable, there might be special cases which are not imported correctly - e.g. for certain file formats original data occasionally contains errors which the importer may not recognize, or be able to deal with correctly; other formats are not sufficiently strictly specified that correct import can be guaranteed under all circumstances.
Download and Install
The simplest way to use the converter is like this -
For example -More information:
will convert an SWC format file into a NeurolucidaASC format file.
Since version 0.6.0, additional command line options have been introduced to enable the user to (1) view more information about the imported file, and (2) give more control over the exported data.
Contact and Feedback
of publicly available data is quite limited for many
morphology formats, and various special cases of data layout may not
have been tested.
