Bases: napari.layers.image.image._ImageBase

Labels (or segmentation) layer.

An image-like layer where every pixel contains an integer ID corresponding to the region it belongs to.

Parameters
  • data (array or list of array) – Labels data as an array or multiscale. Must be integer type or bools. Please note multiscale rendering is only supported in 2D. In 3D, only the lowest resolution scale is displayed.

  • num_colors (int) – Number of unique colors to use in colormap.

  • features (dict[str, array-like] or DataFrame) – Features table where each row corresponds to a label and each column is a feature. The first row corresponds to the background label.

  • properties (dict {str: array (N,)} or DataFrame) – Properties for each label. Each property should be an array of length N, where N is the number of labels, and the first property corresponds to background.

  • color (dict of int to str or array) – Custom label to color mapping. Values must be valid color names or RGBA arrays.

  • seed (float) – Seed for colormap random generator.

  • name (str) – Name of the layer.

  • metadata (dict) – Layer metadata.

  • scale (tuple of float) – Scale factors for the layer.

  • translate (tuple of float) – Translation values for the layer.

  • rotate (float, 3-tuple of float, or n-D array.) – If a float convert into a 2D rotation matrix using that value as an angle. If 3-tuple convert into a 3D rotation matrix, using a yaw, pitch, roll convention. Otherwise assume an nD rotation. Angles are assumed to be in degrees. They can be converted from radians with np.degrees if needed.

  • shear (1-D array or n-D array) – Either a vector of upper triangular values, or an nD shear matrix with ones along the main diagonal.

  • affine (n-D array or napari.utils.transforms.Affine) – (N+1, N+1) affine transformation matrix in homogeneous coordinates. The first (N, N) entries correspond to a linear transform and the final column is a length N translation vector and a 1 or a napari Affine transform object. Applied as an extra transform on top of the provided scale, rotate, and shear values.

  • opacity (float) – Opacity of the layer visual, between 0.0 and 1.0.

  • blending (str) – One of a list of preset blending modes that determines how RGB and alpha values of the layer visual get mixed. Allowed values are {‘opaque’, ‘translucent’, and ‘additive’}.

  • rendering (str) – 3D Rendering mode used by vispy. Must be one {‘translucent’, ‘iso_categorical’}. ‘translucent’ renders without lighting. ‘iso_categorical’ uses isosurface rendering to calculate lighting effects on labeled surfaces. The default value is ‘iso_categorical’.

  • depiction (str) – 3D Depiction mode. Must be one of {‘volume’, ‘plane’}. The default value is ‘volume’.

  • visible (bool) – Whether the layer visual is currently being displayed.

  • multiscale (bool) – Whether the data is a multiscale image or not. Multiscale data is represented by a list of array like image data. If not specified by the user and if the data is a list of arrays that decrease in shape then it will be taken to be multiscale. The first image in the list should be the largest. Please note multiscale rendering is only supported in 2D. In 3D, only the lowest resolution scale is displayed.

  • cache (bool) – Whether slices of out-of-core datasets should be cached upon retrieval. Currently, this only applies to dask arrays.

  • plane (dict or SlicingPlane) – Properties defining plane rendering in 3D. Properties are defined in data coordinates. Valid dictionary keys are {‘position’, ‘normal’, ‘thickness’, and ‘enabled’}.

  • experimental_clipping_planes (list of dicts, list of ClippingPlane, or ClippingPlaneList) – Each dict defines a clipping plane in 3D in data coordinates. Valid dictionary keys are {‘position’, ‘normal’, and ‘enabled’}. Values on the negative side of the normal are discarded if the plane is enabled.

data

Integer label data as an array or multiscale. Can be N dimensional. Every pixel contains an integer ID corresponding to the region it belongs to. The label 0 is rendered as transparent. Please note multiscale rendering is only supported in 2D. In 3D, only the lowest resolution scale is displayed.

Type

array or list of array

multiscale

Whether the data is a multiscale image or not. Multiscale data is represented by a list of array like image data. The first image in the list should be the largest. Please note multiscale rendering is only supported in 2D. In 3D, only the lowest resolution scale is displayed.

mode

Interactive mode. The normal, default mode is PAN_ZOOM, which allows for normal interactivity with the canvas.

In PICK mode the cursor functions like a color picker, setting the clicked on label to be the current label. If the background is picked it will select the background label 0.

In PAINT mode the cursor functions like a paint brush changing any pixels it brushes over to the current label. If the background label 0 is selected than any pixels will be changed to background and this tool functions like an eraser. The size and shape of the cursor can be adjusted in the properties widget.

In FILL mode the cursor functions like a fill bucket replacing pixels of the label clicked on with the current label. It can either replace all pixels of that label or just those that are contiguous with the clicked on pixel. If the background label 0 is selected than any pixels will be changed to background and this tool functions like an eraser.

In ERASE mode the cursor functions similarly to PAINT mode, but to paint with background label, which effectively removes the label.

bind_key(key, func=<object object>, *, overwrite=False)

Bind a key combination to a keymap.

Parameters
  • keymap (dict of str: callable) – Keymap to modify.

  • key (str or ...) – Key combination. ... acts as a wildcard if no key combinations can be matched in the keymap (this will overwrite all key combinations further down the lookup chain).

  • func (callable, None, or ...) – Callable to bind to the key combination. If None is passed, unbind instead. ... acts as a blocker, effectively unbinding the key combination for all keymaps further down the lookup chain.

  • overwrite (bool, keyword-only, optional) – Whether to overwrite the key combination if it already exists.

Returns

unbound – Callable unbound by this operation, if any.

Return type

callable or None

Notes

Key combinations are represented in the form [modifier-]key, e.g. a, Control-c, or Control-Alt-Delete. Valid modifiers are Control, Alt, Shift, and Meta.

Letters will always be read as upper-case. Due to the native implementation of the key system, Shift pressed in certain key combinations may yield inconsistent or unexpected results. Therefore, it is not recommended to use Shift with non-letter keys. On OSX, Control is swapped with Meta such that pressing Command reads as Control.

Special keys include Shift, Control, Alt, Meta, Up, Down, Left, Right, PageUp, PageDown, Insert, Delete, Home, End, Escape, Backspace, F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11, F12, Space, Enter, and Tab

Functions take in only one argument: the parent that the function was bound to.

By default, all functions are assumed to work on key presses only, but can be denoted to work on release too by separating the function into two statements with the yield keyword:

@viewer.bind_key('h')
def hello_world(viewer):
    # on key press
    viewer.status = 'hello world!'

    yield

    # on key release
    viewer.status = 'goodbye world :('

To create a keymap that will block others, bind_key(..., ...)`.

property blending

Blending.OPAQUE

Blending.TRANSLUCENT

Blending.ADDITIVE

Allows for multiple layers to be blended together with different colors and opacity. Useful for creating overlays. It corresponds to depth_test=False, cull_face=False, blend=True, blend_func=(‘src_alpha’, ‘one’).

Type

If you need to specifically rely on the pandas API, please coerce this to a pandas.DataFrame using features_to_pandas_dataframe.

In PICK mode the cursor functions like a color picker, setting the clicked on label to be the current label. If the background is picked it will select the background label 0.

In PAINT mode the cursor functions like a paint brush changing any pixels it brushes over to the current label. If the background label 0 is selected than any pixels will be changed to background and this tool functions like an eraser. The size and shape of the cursor can be adjusted in the properties widget.

In FILL mode the cursor functions like a fill bucket replacing pixels of the label clicked on with the current label. It can either replace all pixels of that label or just those that are contiguous with the clicked on pixel. If the background label 0 is selected than any pixels will be changed to background and this tool functions like an eraser.
