Description
Reconstruct is a free editor for serial section microscopy. The software is designed for microscopy in which section resolution is much less than section thickness, such as transmitted electron microscopy (EM) where the resolution is a few nanometers while the section thickness is many tens of nanometers. The program facilitates montaging, cropping, and aligning of images, as well as tracing, measuring, and reconstructing the surface of serially sectioned structures. Three dimensional structures can be previewed in an OpenGL window and saved in VRML format.
