This wiki describes software and experimental methods developed for digital imaging applications in the VistaLab. The work here is done in collaboration with members of Stanford's Center for Image Systems Engineering.

There is a PDC Software page that explains how to download software and use SVN.

SyNAPSE Projects

The Synapse project is supported by DARPA and managed by IBM. Stanford was a sub-contractor. The pages here aim to integrate the public components of that project. These public components can be useful on their own, without access to the proprietary parts controlled by our partners.

The Synapse project can be checked out using svn from To receive a password for this repository (which is different from the ee or vista repository), ask Robert Dougherty or Brian Wandell.
