Description

TrichEratops is a software to extract the shape of trichomes. It applies focus stacking on a series of light microscopic pictures. The 3D surface from the stack is reconstructed using Elastic Map fitting. Trichomes can be marked on the Leaf surface and patterning statistics can be calculated from them.
