All the interactions with the Cytomine core are performed through a RESTful API.
The main access point to Cytomine data is its REST API.
It allows to import/export data from Cytomine-Core and Cytomine-IMS using RESTful web services e.g. to generate annotation (spatial) statistics, create regions of interest (e.g. tumor masks), add metadata to images/annotations, apply algorithms on image tiles, ...
The API documentation is automatically installed with our automated installation procedure. For the demo server, it is located here: http://demo.cytomine.be/restApiDoc/?doc_url=http://demo.cytomine.be/restApiDoc/api.
See here complete description of the REST API documentation to access data.
This API makes the link between a Cytomine client and the Cytomine-Core server.
The currently supported clients are
- the web interface
- the Python client (how to install and use it, examples)
- the Java client
All available services provided by the API are summarized in a user-friendly way on a website automatically installed with Cytomine core.
