Web Appendix

Heidi M. Sosik and Robert J. Olson
Automated taxonomic classification of phytoplankton sampled with imaging in-flow cytometry
2007, 5:204-216

Electronic copy of image sets used for training and testing the classification scheme. This appendix contains 3300 manually categorized images of cells and other particles. The images were collected with Imaging FlowCytobot from Woods Hole Harbor water. The images are stored in tiff format and are organized at 2 levels. First, they are split between training and testing sets of equal size. Second, each set contains 22 categories with 150 individual images in each. The 22 categories are explained in more detail in the text. Category labels match those described in the text except that the label "other_lt20" corresponds to "other <20 Ám" in the text.

Images are available in compressed ZIP files for download. Because it can be difficult to download very large ZIP files, the images have been broken into two larger ZIP files "training.zip" (128MB) and "testing.zip" (131 MB). If these are still too large for a successful download, each of the 22 categories is available as a separate ZIP file from the list below.
