ASAP - Fluid whole-slide image viewer

ASAP (Automated Slide Analysis Platform) is a fast and fluid viewer for digitized multi-resolution histopathology images. ASAP offers several tools to make annotations in an intuitive way. Dots, rectangles, polygons are all supported. ASAP allows on-slide visualization of image analysis and machine learning results such as segmentation masks with customizable lookup-tables.
