FARSIGHT is a collection of modules for image analysis created by LOCI’s collaborators at the University of Houston. These open source modules are built on the ITK library and thus can take advantage of ITK’s support for Bio-Formats to process otherwise unsupported image formats.

The principal FARSIGHT module that benefits from Bio-Formats is the Nucleus Editor, though in principle any FARSIGHT-based code that reads image formats via the standard ITK mechanism will be able to leverage Bio-Formats.
