TransformJ: A Java Package for Geometrical Image Transformation
TransformJ is a package of ImageJ plugins for geometrical image transformation and manipulation.
The plugins can handle up to five-dimensional (5D) images of any type supported by ImageJ.
See the followings links for a description of the plugins of the package as available in the Panel:
Fiji users: the plugins are already part of the distribution and can be found under the Plugins > Transform menu.
ImageJ users: installation is accomplished by downloading the following two jar-files to the plugins folder.
By downloading any of these files you indicate your agreement to the Terms and Conditions below.
> TransformJ_.jar (version 2.8.0)
> imagescience.jar (version 2.4.1)
The jar-files contain both the source code and the compiled versions of all classes.
The API of the second file (support library) is also available in case you are interested.
See the release notes for information on the present and past versions.

TransformJ was first developed during my stay at the Biomedical Imaging Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, when I was financially supported by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). The package is a completely revised, extended, and improved version of an earlier C++ library that I wrote during my stay as a PhD student at the Image Sciences Institute of Utrecht University, the Netherlands. If you publish results that are based on TransformJ, I expect you to acknowledge me.

The paper presents the results of a large-scale evaluation study of over 100 convolution-based interpolation techniques for geometrical transformation of medical image data, from which it was concluded that spline-based techniques (included in TransformJ) yield the best cost-performance trade-off.
