Public Roadmap

webKnossos is under active development. We are shipping new features and improvements every month.

Here is an overview of the bigger features we have planned for next couple of months. This roadmap is subject to change.Please send us your feedback via email or on Twitter.

Q4
2022

Dataset management

Organize datasets into folders, attach permissions to folders.Add metadata to datasets, folders and search by metadata.

Q4
2022

Quick select

Draw a rectangle around an object and fill it automatically with a floodfill algorithm.

Q4
2022

Segmentation proof-reading

Fix split and merge errors by editing the underlying supervoxel graph of a segmentation.Works best with segmentations from Voxelytics.

Q1
2023

Multi-modal

Visualizing layers of different modalities (e.g. light microscopy, µCT, EM) in a single view.Map all modalities in a single coordinate space with affine transformations.Create transformations with rotate, scale, and translate tools.

Q2 
2023

Time series

Support for importing time series data into webKnossos (5D = 3D + channels + time).Support for selecting time points via a slider in the UI.

Q2
2023

Segment statistics

Calculating and showing statistics about imported and created segmentations.Statistics will include information per segment such as volume, surface area, centroids, bounding boxes.

Q2
2023

Single sign-on integration

OpenID Connect (OIDC), SAML, LDAP authentication support.

Q3
2023

Better fluorescence support

Automatic contrast settings.Maximum intensity projection in 3D viewport.

Q3
2023

AI-based automated segmentations

Full training loop with creating annotations in webKnossos, training a model as a background process and performing inference of a dataset.One-button solutions with pre-trained models for several segmentation tasks in EM including neurons, synapses, nuclei, mitochondria.

Previous work

Q3
2022

Zarr streaming

Stream datasets and annotations from webKnossos to other tools via the Zarr file format

Q3
2022

Import Zarr and N5

Import Zarr and N5 datasets. Use the OME-NGFF format to define downsampling pyramids and metadata.

Q3
2022

64-Bit segmentations

Support for 64-Bit segmentations.

Q3
2022

Segment colors

Select custom colors for segments.

Q3
2022

Shared annotations

Better collaboration by enabling write access to a shared annotation within a team of annotators.

Q2
2022

Volume interpolation

Create a volume annotation on a section, skip a few sections, draw again and interpolate in between.

Q1
2022

Connectome Viewer

Visualize agglomerate skeletons and synapses. List synaptic connections of neuron and jump from one neuron to the next.

Q2 
2022

Python library

Create, upload and access datasets and annotations from Python.
