Simple ITK


  • Provide an easy-access layer to ITK for non-C++ expert developers

Advisory Review Board (ARB)

  • The Advisory Review Board is composed of groups and individual who are potential users of the Simple ITK Layer.
  • They provide advice to ITK developers of the simple layer regarding the design and implementation of the SimpleITK API.


Examples of Other Librarires

Official source repository

SimpleITK uses git as the revision control system. The main repository is hosted on Github




  • SimpleITK java applications must have access to the org.itk.simple package
  • There are two methods for accessing the org.itk.simple package
    • 1) After building SimpleITK, run "make install"
      • This target will install the org.itk.simple.jar file into the extensions directory of the local jvm
      • This will often require admin permissions since the jvm typically lives in a write protected directory
    • 2) Add org.itk.simple.jar to the java classpath when compiling
      • Note that this is the same as adding the directory containing to the classpath
      • The simplest way to do this is to copy org.itk.simple.jar from SIMPLEITK_BUILD_DIR/Wrapping to the directory containing the target application
$ cp SIMPLEITK_BUILD_DIR/Wrapping/org.itk.simple.jar .
$ javac -classpath ./org.itk.simple.jar

  • Testing
    • C++ testing (Google Test?)
    • Python tests (PyUnit?)
    • Lua tests (?!?)
    • Java tests (JUnit)
    •  ? other languages ?
  • Managing basic types
    • Arrays
    • Regions
    • Transforms
