imageMAT is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you annotate images, organize those annotations, and share your research.
= Description =
imageMAT is browser-based and open-access, operating under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivative Works license. It is compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Safari and IE (post-6.0). Use of imageMAT requires registration. Once you have registered and logged into your account, you can create, edit, save, and share an unlimited number of image-annotations. imageMAT imports the URL of an image from its online repository; the tool does not store the image itself, and therefore protects the copyright of the image’s owner(s). You can cut-and-paste the URL directly into the annotation page of the tool. To make importing of image URLs even easier, we have created a bookmarklet that automatically imports a URL to your account.
”’PLEASE NOTE:”’ ””’You must have cookies enabled in your browser for the bookmarklet to function properly.””’
