Tracking Software


Click the link below to download the original version of our tracking program. This version requires either the full version of LabVIEW (including IMAQ) or the IMAQ runtime engine version 6.0 or greater.
Read the "readme.txt" file for instructions on installation and use. Currently, the software only supports image stacks of bmp, jpeg, png, or tiff. File numbers must follow the convention [basename][number].[filetype], the number MUST be 3 digits long, padded by zeroes (eg, 001, 009, 010, 099, 100, etc.).


Click the link below to download more recent versions of our tracking program which uses LabVIEW 7.1 and Vision 7.1.

Version 1.2 notes:
Removed 'File', 'edit', etc. dropdown menus as they are basically non-functional in this program. Removed 'execute continuously' button.
Download version 1.2

Version 1.1 notes:
In most respects this program works identically to the previous version, except that the extension .AVI is available. The Vision utility used to open AVIs is capable of understanding several compression schemes depending on what is installed on the computer. Press the "AVI Filters Available" button to see a list of filters Vision detects and should work with.
Download version 1.1

Please check back for future updates.

For more information on this program and how well it does compared to other tracking programs, see our article on the Physical Biology website.
