The Annotation ROI 3D plug-in is a plug-in designed to aid in annotating 3D image stacks. The plug-in identifies unique 3D regions, assigns them an ID and allows comments to be made relating to each region. Comments and data about the regions can then be exported in XML data format for analysis.

This project was completed at the National Institute of Informatics. As Japan's only general academic research institution seeking to create future value in the new discipline of informatics, the National Institute of Informatics (NII) seeks to advance integrated research and development activities in information-related fields, including networking, software, and content. These activities range from theoretical and methodological work through applications. As an inter-university research institute, NII promotes the creation of a state-of-the-art academic-information infrastructure (the Cyber Science Infrastructure, or CSI) that is essential to research and education within the broader academic community, with a focus on partnerships and other joint efforts with universities and research institutions throughout Japan, as well as industries and civilian organizations.
