Need help with image analysis?

  1. The first step is to post in the Scientific Community Image Forum under the COBA tag. The COBA team and members of the community can help answer questions, so this is a great resource for most of your imaging analysis problems.

  2. If posting there doesn't answer your question, the next step is to sign up for Image Analysis Office Hours. These office hours are designed to help you develop an image analysis solution using open-source software. They are limited and open to the discretion of the team. You should only sign up for two slots per year.

  3. If you then need more in-depth help,  your project might be a good fit for a long-term (many months) collaboration with the COBA team. Please visit our Project Inquiry page.
