Python is an interpreted language that, thanks to the help of communities around the world, can be used for scientific applications, with most of these toolboxes being additional computational methods. This project aims to create a Python toolbox, called PyIFT, for image processing and analysis using the Image-Forest Transform, thus taking advantage of Python's dynamic typing to perform tests and aid in teaching and research. As some algorithms involving the Image-Forest Transformation are interactive, this toolbox will include tools for interaction of methods with users, visualization of propagation of paths and labels (colors) of forest trees, facilitating understanding, and integration with other modules Python used by the research group.
