New here. We’ve recently implemented read support for multi-channel multi-z data in OME-TIF in our software.
In working our way through the OME-XML schema documentation
we’ve identified the Pixels/@SignificantBits attribute that helps sort out when you’ve got say a 10bit camera storing 10bit data in a 16 bit container.
What we’re wondering is if folks have any agreed upon strategy for storing specific min / max pixel intensity values themselves in the OME-XML. There doesn’t seem to be a parameter for this?
Currently, we just process the data and determine the min / max we need for say a particular channel or particular Z plane. It would be nice to follow an agreed convention for storing / retrieving that data so as to avoid reprocessing the data every time it’s loaded.
Thank for your thoughts! Happy to clarify anything if I’ve been unclear.
