The GuidosToolbox Workbench (GWB) contains most popular image analysis modules extracted from GuidosToolbox and setup as commandline-only scripts for automated mass-processing on Linux 64bit servers.
GWB standalone folder setup (left) and terminal module listing (right).
Each GWB-module will process all (geo-)tiff images in the input-directory with the module-specific parameter settings and place the results into the output-directory. Additional information is available in the product sheets and the included file readme.txt.
GWB is available for Linux 64bit systems only (current version: 1.8.8, changelog). Installing and using the compiled version of GWB implies acceptance of the GWB-EULA. The open source code of GWB and all dependencies is released under GPL version 3 on GitHub.
GWB can be used in two ways:
a) standalone mode: by any system user without adminstrator rights, or
b) system mode: installed and made available system-wide to all users of your Linux installation.
First download and read the GWB Installation instructions. They contain important additional information to ensure a correct installation and functioning of the application. Next, download the installer for your operating system (please use right-click - Save as and download the file to a local directory):
Fedora/RedHat/CentOS, Mageia, Suse, Debian/*buntu or the generic installer
To ensure the package integrity, compare the md5sum of your downloaded package against the GWB md5sum list.
