Proposals:Add nifti file IO
Add NiFTI IO
The approach to integrating the NiFTI file format is similar to that of the NRRDIO and MetaImage File formats. The University of Iowa will take the lead role in this effort.
The goal is to foster interoperability at the file-exchange level between FMRI data analysis software packages.
The following image processing packages committed to support this format for both input and output.

To provide the Insight Toolkit (www.itk.org) with the ability to read and write nifti file formats the following tasks need to be done:
Contributions I intend to make to nifti (upon approval of course): 1) Place the nifticlib as a part of the standard Insight/Utilities nightly build 1a) Augment the reference nifticlib with CMake building infrastructure 1b) Remove all compiler errors and warnings that arrise from building under the ITK platforms every night. 1c) Create test suite that reaches 80% code coverage of the nifticlib code within the ctest framework 1d) Write an ITKIO proper IO filter that utilizes the nifticlib 2) Syncronize Insight/Sourceforge http://nifti.sourceforge.net 2a) The fortified code will kept in sync with the sourceforge nifticlib 2b) Much of the testing suite will be
