is the open-source quantitative analysis toolkit for animal experiments. It provides the easy video preprocessing by the visual programming and estimates positions and/or orientations of each animals. In addition, it can also analyze the output-data; the distance from the designated position, the region-of-interests and the interactions between each animal.
The new version was released. And, finally, the paper is out now!.
We don't like e-mail, so please join our Slack if you want some good supports.
We don't know whether UMATracker is actually used for scientific reasoning, and this prevents us from aggressive developing and supporting.
Please send your use-case to us from this form (The requests is also okay).
We have not much time to promote UMATracker, so please share your use-cases or lecture notes online. It is also good way that you simply send them to us and we will publish on our web-site.
UMATracker is "UMATracker", not "UMA Tracker" or "UmaTracker".
NO space, "UMA" and "T" is upper case. ;-)
