Welcome to napari-locan!#
napari-locan is a plugin for working with single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) data within napari. Such data is typically generated in fluorescence-based super-resolution microscopy methods. SMLM techniques rely on finding the position of single-molecule emitters in time and space and reconstructing a super-resolved image or movie. The generated localizations are analyzed point-by-point for statistical and structural insight.
The plugin implements a subset of methods from Locan, a python-based library with code for analyzing SMLM data. Locan provides extended functionality that is better suited for script- or notebook-based analysis procedures. napari-locan is well suited for exploratory data analysis.
