Create Geometry (Image)

Group (Subgroup)

Core (Generation)


This Filter creates an Image Geometry specifically for the representation of a 3D rectilinear grid of voxels (3D) or pixels (2D). Each axis can have its starting point (origin), resolution, and length defined for the Geometry. The Data Container in which to place the Image Geometry must be specified.

Example Usage

If you are reading in raw binary data that represents data on a rectilinear grid, the user will need to run this filter first to create a description of the Geometry.


Name Type Description
Dimensions size_t (3x) The number of cells in each of the X, Y, Z directions
Origin float (3x) The origin of each of the axes in X, Y, Z order
Resolution float (3x) The length scale of each voxel/pixel
