Browsing the OME website in search of an open file format for FLIM data which I could use for my own application, I ended up on this page:
which lists a gazillion formats (which it would be nice to be able to sort according to the different categories…), the “greenest” one being, of course, the OME ones (OME-TIFF and OME-XML).
Notwithstanding the absence of a working link to OME-TIFF specification docs on that page (but the actual specs can be found here: The OME-TIFF format — OME Data Model and File Formats 6.2.0 documentation), I am wondering whether the community could chip in on their favorite FLIM file format (open, not linked to a specific vendor, as I am using custom instruments).
The OME-XML specification page seems to have been last updated in 2016… but the reason is explained in an unrelated page: The OME-XML format — OME Data Model and File Formats 6.2.0 documentation, so OME-TIFF seems to be the way to go. However, I am unclear how FLOAT images would be stored in such a format (e.g. phase and modulus data for a phasor image),
