Dear image.sc @team,
SBEMimage is an open-source Python/PyQt application to control complex acquisitions with scanning electron microscopes, in particular for serial block-face imaging.
We published and released the software in 2018 under the MIT License. It is now being used in six EM facilities, and several other labs/facilities are currently setting it up and testing it on their setups. Since 2019, other developers have joined to extend SBEMimage’s functionality.
Until now, SBEMimage users have mostly communicated directly with me for feedback, questions, and feature suggestions. Since the user base is steadily increasing, I see the need for a well-maintained forum to discuss everything SBEMimage-related. A while ago, I created a Google Group for that, but it has not been used yet, and I would delete it if SBEMimage finds a home on image.sc.
The image.sc forum was suggested to me as a suitable place for discussion and support, and I’d be glad if SBEMimage could join as a community partner. I’ve put a link to the image.sc forum on the GitHub readme page and into the user guide. As lead developer, I could be the representative for SBEMimage on the Community Forum Team.
Please let me know if SBEMimage could join as a community member and what additional steps would need to be taken.
