Digital Notebook 1.2.28 – Image Management & Annotation

Digital Notebook 1.2.28


Digital Notebook is designed to simplify the image annotation process. It allows researchers to create meta-data required by the bio-image database. It can also update, print and upload existing information.


Digital Notebook is a digital notebook for biologists to manage image collections and related metadata both on their local machines and for integrating with the BISQUE database. The Digital Notebook eases the management and creation of metadata descriptions of large volumes of images by using domain knowledge to relieve the biologist of repetetive tasks. The metadata entry system is fully customizable to the specific need of an image set through an editable XML config file that stores information about what metadata fields are necessary for a certain class of images as well as default and common values for those fields. The Digital Notebook also has a built in file browser for easily navigating sets of images kept in separate folders. It can read JPEG, TIFF, and PNG formatted image files and stores the metadata in a companion XML file next to the image.
