WHOI Silhouette DIGITIZER is a MATLAB-based computer program for measuring the lengths of marine organisms in the macrozooplankton size range. DIGITIZER displays a scanned photographic image of a seawater slurry containing large numbers of marine organisms, upon which is superimposed a reference grid. DIGITIZER then allows you to measure the organisms' lengths using the cursor on the computer screen. DIGITIZER automatically calculates each organism’s biomass and generates spreadsheet compatible output listings of basic statistics derived from the data. DIGITIZER also produces text files of lengths, weights, and size-frequency histograms.
