Manual tracking / Chemotaxis tool problems



Hi all,

I’m having a problem with the manual tracking and chemotaxis tools in Image J. When i try to import the xls file from manual tracking into the chemotaxis tool it fails to read the file correctly and jumbles up the track numbers, rendering the files unusable. Initially this was a problem in Fiji and was solved by moving to image J but has now started in there too.

eg, In the chemotaxis tool, instead of reading the file as Track 1, Slice 1,2,3,4 etc… it reads as Track 1, slice 1, track 2, slice 1…track 1, slice 2, track 2, slice 2…

Does anybody know what is going on here/how to fix this?




It seems another user had a similar issue - see this older forum post:

I believe @Elias will be the best person to help you in this.

The Chemotaxis and Migration Tool is pretty picky when it comes to the data table import. Please send me your data table and I will see what I can do.
