show_3D

show_3D(im)[source]

Rotates a 3D image and creates an angled view for rough 2D visualization.

Because it rotates the image it can be slow for large images, so is mostly meant for rough checking of small prototype images.

Parameters

im (ndarray) – The 3D array to be viewed from an angle

Returns

image – A 2D veiw of the given 3D image

Return type

ndarray

Notes

Although this is meant to be quick it can still take on the order of minutes to render very large images. It uses scipy.ndimage.rotate with no interpolation to view the 3D image from an angle, then casts the result into a 2D projection.
