Summary:Mobile Microscopy is a real time 3D digital model viewer for mobile devices that integrates a digital image platform to navigate isotropic models created from actual image data provided by scientists, engineers and biotechnologists around the world. This tool allows for users to explore complex image data in any orientation by using just their fingertips. The user can freely fly through different perspectives as well as applying augmented reality technology for an even more immersive interaction of the data. The secure platform is a convenient portal to access high resolution models of image data including but not limited to (.tif, .png, .czi, .sis, .obj, DICOM formats) in real time on mobile devices independent of specific image acquisition platforms used in basic research, biomedical, engineering, theoretical modeling and medical imaging systems or use of costly image processing software. The tool under development enables users to view real biological image data using any mobile device allowing for a broad range of users to freely explore and investigate scientific image data on their own.
