Discuss among the group what topics below of are interest to discuss, and prioritize.
- Define Slicer software infrastructure and conventions for atlases
- Accommodating volumetric and surface based atlases
- Providing unique identifiers per structure within any atlas
- Providing mapping from fiducials/landmarks to unique identifiers
- Providing a mapping from structure to unique identifier to appearance attributes such as color
- Providing ability to visually represent related groups of structures (e.g. structures that comprise a single structural or functional system, superstructure, or designated region)
- Incorporating existing systems of nomenclature and ontologies: (NeuroNames, FMA, BirnLex...)
- Schemes for mapping local identifiers to names/IDs in official ontologies, (and common synonyms?)
- Developing and representing both structural and functional relationships
- How to perform cross-atlas indexing, combine atlas information?
- Can/Should there eventually be a 'how-to create a slicer atlas' document?
- Slicer-based tools that work the same for all atlases
- mapping atlases to individuals (for overlaying experimental data or individual image data)
- interactive tools for displaying labels in various nomenclatures on mouseover
- interactive tools to do both point-based and region-based indexing (useful for brain?)
- interactive tools to display and navigate hierarchical relationships between structures, superstructures and substructures
- compatibility with web-based tools for making queries in anatomical context
- other useful interactive tools?
