Abstract

As image information is increasing sharply, searching and presenting interesting images in large databases have become more and more important in image management. In this paper, an optimizing graphical query interface was designed for anatomical search to present more valuable information from the large neuro-anatomical image collections of Drosophila (fruit fly) brains. In order to achieve the goal, the relevant websites of “Fly Circuit”, “Fly Light” and “Allen Mouse Brain Atlas”, and the image management software of PivotViewer and Zegami were investigated firstly. Then, analysis and comparison for the mentioned tools using different perspectives were conducted to define the guidelines for best practices out of them. Based on the findings, several redesigns are proposed for neuro-anatomical query interfaces and part of them were implemented.
