Methods to create a new viewer instance then add a particular layer type.

All functions follow this pattern, (where <layer_type> is replaced with one of the layer types, like “image”, “points”, etc…):

def view_<layer_type>(*args, **kwargs):

# … pop all of the viewer kwargs out of kwargs into viewer_kwargs viewer = Viewer(**viewer_kwargs) add_method = getattr(viewer, f”add_{<layer_type>}”) add_method(*args, **kwargs) return viewer

In 3D, only the lowest resolution scale is displayed.

  • channel_axis (int, optional) – Axis to expand image along. If provided, each channel in the data will be added as an individual image layer. In channel_axis mode, all other parameters MAY be provided as lists, and the Nth value will be applied to the Nth channel in the data. If a single value is provided, it will be broadcast to all Layers.

  • rgb (bool or list) – Whether the image is rgb RGB or RGBA. If not specified by user and the last dimension of the data has length 3 or 4 it will be set as True.

napari.view_layers.view_tracks(data, *, properties=None, graph=None, tail_width=2, tail_length=30, head_length=0, name=None, metadata=None, scale=None, translate=None, rotate=None, shear=None, affine=None, opacity=1, blending='additive', visible=True, colormap='turbo', color_by='track_id', colormaps_dict=None, experimental_clipping_planes=None, title='napari', ndisplay=2, order=(), axis_labels=(), show=True)[source]

Create a viewer and add a tracks layer.

Parameters
  • data (array (N, D+1)) – Coordinates for N points in D+1 dimensions. ID,T,(Z),Y,X. The first axis is the integer ID of the track. D is either 3 or 4 for planar or volumetric timeseries respectively.

  • properties (dict {str: array (N,)}, DataFrame) – Properties for each point. Each property should be an array of length N, where N is the number of points.

  • graph (dict {int: list}) – Graph representing associations between tracks. Dictionary defines the mapping between a track ID and the parents of the track. This can be one (the track has one parent, and the parent has >=1 child) in the case of track splitting, or more than one (the track has multiple parents, but only one child) in the case of track merging. See examples/tracks_3d_with_graph.py

  • color_by (str) – Track property (from property keys) by which to color vertices.

  • tail_width (float) – Width of the track tails in pixels.

  • tail_length (float) – Length of the positive (backward in time) tails in units of time.

  • head_length (float) – Length of the positive (forward in time) tails in units of time.

  • colormap (str) – Default colormap to use to set vertex colors. Specialized colormaps, relating to specified properties can be passed to the layer via colormaps_dict.

  • colormaps_dict (dict {str: napari.utils.Colormap}) – Optional dictionary mapping each property to a colormap for that property. This allows each property to be assigned a specific colormap, rather than having a global colormap for everything.

  • 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’}.

  • visible (bool) –

    Whether the layer visual is currently being displayed. title : string, optional

    The title of the viewer window. by default ‘napari’.

    ndisplay{2, 3}, optional

    Number of displayed dimensions. by default 2.

    ordertuple of int, optional

    Order in which dimensions are displayed where the last two or last three dimensions correspond to row x column or plane x row x column if ndisplay is 2 or 3. by default None

    axis_labelslist of str, optional

    Dimension names. by default they are labeled with sequential numbers

    showbool, optional

    Whether to show the viewer after instantiation. by default True.

Returns

viewer – The newly-created viewer.

Return type

napari.view_layers.view_vectors(data, *, properties=None, property_choices=None, edge_width=1, edge_color='red', edge_color_cycle=None, edge_colormap='viridis', edge_contrast_limits=None, length=1, name=None, metadata=None, scale=None, translate=None, rotate=None, shear=None, affine=None, opacity=0.7, blending='translucent', visible=True, experimental_clipping_planes=None, title='napari', ndisplay=2, order=(), axis_labels=(), show=True)[source]

Create a viewer and add a vectors layer.

Parameters
  • data ((N, 2, D) or (N1, N2, .., ND, D) array) – An (N, 2, D) array is interpreted as “coordinate-like” data and a list of N vectors with start point and projections of the vector in D dimensions. An (N1, N2, …, ND, D) array is interpreted as “image-like” data where there is a length D vector of the projections at each pixel.

  • properties (dict {str: array (N,)}, DataFrame) – Properties for each vector. Each property should be an array of length N, where N is the number of vectors.

  • property_choices (dict {str: array (N,)}) – possible values for each property.

  • edge_width (float) – Width for all vectors in pixels.

  • length (float) – Multiplicative factor on projections for length of all vectors.

  • edge_color (str) – Color of all of the vectors.

  • edge_color_cycle (np.ndarray, list) – Cycle of colors (provided as string name, RGB, or RGBA) to map to edge_color if a categorical attribute is used color the vectors.

  • edge_colormap (str, napari.utils.Colormap) – Colormap to set vector color if a continuous attribute is used to set edge_color.

  • edge_contrast_limits (None, (float, float)) – clims for mapping the property to a color map. These are the min and max value of the specified property that are mapped to 0 and 1, respectively. The default value is None. If set the none, the clims will be set to (property.min(), property.max())

  • 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.
