JIV: A 3D Image Data Visualization and Comparison Tool
JIV is a Java software for visualization and side-by-side comparison
of multiple 3D image datasets.
While it was originally designed for remote data access (through
the WWW), it can be used as a traditional (local) application as well.
- highly portable and platform-independent: it can be run with a
common Web browser.
- can cope with slow network links (for remote access)
- uses a simple and platform-independent 3D image data format, and
accepts arbitrary volume samplings.
- displays gray-level (intensity) image data with a
user-controlled color-mapping; also provides merged (blended)
views of pairs of images.
- an efficient mouse-based user input scheme provides fast roaming
through the volume, and continuously adjustable zoom and pan.

Info for BIC.MNI users:
For local use, you want jiv.pl .
For remote (Web) access to data:
- Use minc2jiv.pl to convert your data
- Edit the config file as needed (the one used for the above
demo is this)
- Setup the html file that starts JIV.
For now, set the
archive attribute to:
You should also add a SSI (server side include) reference to
/users/crisco/jiv/prod/ssi_insert.html right after the
applet tag in the html file.
