Welcome to I3S: Interactive Individual Identification System
We have released I3S Pattern+, useful for for example newst and toats and other animals with distinct (belly) patterns. See also Wildlife Photo-ID Network Newsletter.
We have updated I3S Contour, a very small update (still called version 3.0) to correct for Java 8.
We have released I3S Straighten, a pre-processing tool to correct for the variations in body pose and only to be used for images perpendicular to the line of sight.
We attended a great Photo-ID workshop in Finland last November. Video presentations of all keynote speakers (including us!) have been made available on YouTube.

I3S Pattern is the fourth release in a series of related software tools.
The first release was I3S (now referred to as I3S Classic). This package is based on annotation of the spot centers and is used for animals with lots of similarly shaped spots such as whale sharks.
The second package was named I3S Manta (when upgraded this version will be called I3S Spot). I3S Spot focuses on animals with less spots and more variation. Instead of annotating the centers only, spots are annotated by the closest fitting ellipse around each spot, in this way taking spot size and shape into account.
The third package was I3S Contour, which used the contour of e.g. flukes for identification.
