RootReader2D software was designed to automatically measure root lengths
from digital root images. Using Java(TM) Web Start technology, RootReader2D
measures, records, and displays root system lengths while also storing processing information in
xml-formatted RR2Dat data files. Shown below is a screenshot of the RootReader2D software with
sample output from measured rice root systems.
RootReader3D software was designed to reconstruct and quantify 3D root system
architecture descriptors from 2D rotational image sequences. The software is currently in
the final stages of development.
