Project Description

scikit-image is a Python library for scientific image processing and image analysis. It has been used in fields as disparate as biomedical imaging, astronomy, remote sensing, archaeology, chemistry, and atomic physics, among others. We strive to work seamlessly with the scientific Python community, with tight integration with NumPy and SciPy. You can read more in our mission/vision/values document.

Emmanuelle Gouillart (@emmanuelle) and I (Juan Nunez-Iglesias) will both take an active role in mentoring students (we are both funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative for maintenance, development, and outreach for the project). In addition, students can count on other active members of the core team for guidance and encouragement.

Project's Requirements

Students should be familiar with either Python and NumPy, or Matlab (moving from Matlab to Scientific Python is straightforward, and we are more than happy to mentor students in this task!). Some knowledge in image analysis is advantageous but not required.

Tasks And Features

Like many open source projects, we receive many more issues and pull requests than we can get through, so there is a rich pile of work that students can tap into. Our goal as mentors is to help students identify the areas that they are most interested in, and matched to their skill level. We have something for everyone! Here are some example projects:

  • tagged good first issues for students who would like to get started contributing to the library
  • Reasonably self-contained new features that have been requested before:
  • For students comfortable with physics/applied math but new to coding, algorithms involving fast Fourier transforms / Fourier space are underdeveloped in the library, so we expect a lot of low-hanging fruit. Example: removing acquisition noise, as in Chapter 4 of Elegant SciPy (search for "images/moonlanding.png").
  • For students interested in devops, we want to streamline how our website and releases are deployed after each update.
  • ... And many more project options! See our full list of issues at https://github.com/scikit-image/scikit-image/issues, or ask us questions on the mailing list!

Hi all, and apologies that it took us a while to get back to you, as both Emma and I are travelling for a conference. Anyway, we are so happy to hear you are excited, and Ching Lam, it's so great to hear that scikit-image has already been helpful to you!

2D warping error is a funny choice because I met Viren shortly after he published that! I would say however that it didn't take off, so I don't think we would want to implement it in scikit-image. MALIS from Srini Turaga (same lab) (https://github.com/TuragaLab/malis and https://arxiv.org/pdf/0911.5372.pdf) got a bit more traction, but is still sort of niche. We can definitely think about things in this area! One of the things I really want to do is improve the API, speed, and utility of skimage.future.graph.RAG, for example.

In any case, always feel free to check out our issues above to get started, and to contact us on our chat channel at skimage.zulipchat.com


Ching Lam Choi , Wednesday, February 26, 15:13 UTC

I'm working on an image segmentation project and have actually been trying to implement the 2D warping error (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/5539950). We're interested in segmentation-related projects, though we're eager to try anything! We are team "THIS IS SOTA!!" btw :)


Ching Lam Choi , Wednesday, February 26, 15:02 UTC

Hello! My friend and I are extremely interested in contributing to skimage! This package has been unbelievably helpful for our own projects, we can't wait to apply for this project in RGSoC!
