Scalable from giga- to petavoxel datasets
webKnossos scales seamlessly from smaller to the largest image datasets available. Support for 2D and 3D datasets with multiple channels.
Unique annotation modes for faster results
The unique “flight mode” enables very fast skeleton annotation of neurites. Efficient volume annotation tools accelerate training data generation and proof-reading.
Fast browsing no matter where you are
webKnossos storage and streaming technology provides fast browsing speeds to your work computer, home-office laptop and tablet on-the-go.
Your datasets are only accessible by you and your chosen collaborators. Once you are ready, publish them with a click of a button.

webKnossos Tutorial: Neuron Reconstruction
In this blog post, I am going to show you how to reconstruct neurons in webKnossos. The software supports both creating sparse line-segment-based (skeleton) annotations and volume reconstructions. In this tutorial, we will focus on sparse annotation and explore webKnossos’s unique flight mode. I will also show you how to download the annotation and process it in Python.

Making the webKnossos UI more intuitive
webKnossos is a very powerful tool for microscopy data exploration and annotation in the right hands. In the latest release, we are introducing improvements to the UI that make webKnossos easier to get started with and make some advanced features more easily discoverable.
In this blog post, we will go over all the changes and tweaks to the controls to make newcomers welcome and keep veterans in the loop.
Automated neuron reconstruction services for Connectomics
The challenge of Connectomics:Even tiny samples of brain tissue (<1mm³) imaged at a nanometer-scale contain a tremendous amount of neuronal circuits. Researchers from Connectomics believe that understanding these circuits will be a key to understanding how brains learn, think and store memories. Reconstructing these circuits is an incredibly challenging process due to the large volumes of data...
