My current project involves 3d particle tracking.
The challenge I am dealing with at the moment is the assignment problem (the linking of a set of already identified 3d positions of particles in consecutive instances into time-lapse trajectories).
I would like to know how to apply the LAP trackobjects to a dataset not originating from CellProfiler.
My database consists of arrays containing the positions in 3D of the particles at different times, each array resulting from the analysis of one frame from a set of consecutive images.
The arrays are currently numpy arrays, but this could be converted to other formats.
Furthermore, which parts of the code (files, functions, lines if that’s possible) should be modified in order to process 3d data rather than 2d (I assume the modification is rather trivial, is this correct?).
Looking forward to your reply,
