XuvTools: free, fast and reliable stitching of large 3D datasets

Current biomedical research increasingly requires imaging large and thick 3D structures at high resolution. Prominent examples are the tracking of fine filaments over long distances in brain slices, or the localization of gene expression or cell migration in whole animals like Caenorhabditis elegans or zebrafish. To obtain both high resolution and a large field of view (FOV), a combination of multiple recordings ('tiles') is one of the options. Although hardware solutions exist for fast and reproducible acquisition of multiple 3D tiles, generic software solutions are missing to assemble ('stitch') these tiles quickly and accurately.
