Welcome to idtracker.ai’s documentation!¶
idtracker.ai allows to track groups of up to 100 unmarked animals from videos.
The source code and installation instructions can be found at https://gitlab.com/polavieja_lab/idtrackerai.git.
Check out the General video conditions to get some advice in how to create videos that will give you the best tracking results with idtracker.ai.
Send us your videos using idtracker.ai and we will add them to our gallery with proper attribution.
We have summarized in the FAQs some of the questions that we get more often.
We provide a set of Jupyter Notebooks for analysis of the trajectories that idtracker.ai outputs.
idtracker.ai is opensource and free software (both as in freedom and as in free beer). We have documented the code so that it is easier for developers to modify it to their needs.
idmatcher.ai matches identities between videos¶
We have also developed a toolbox to match identities between videos, called idmatcher.ai.
