Napari Image Viewer

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

Latest Update: See our blog post for a twenty-five minute overview video of all napari projects we did in 2020.

For eight months in 2020 we worked on a paid contract for The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to improve the rendering behavior and performance of Napari. Napari is an open source multi-dimensional image viewer for Python, used for scientific imaging mostly in the fields of Neuroscience and Biology.
