Waxholm Space

Waxholm Space is a coordinate based reference space for the mapping and registration of neuroanatomical data. This new standardization in atlas mapping, named after the site of a key meeting in 2008, is a central initiative in the Program on Digital Atlasing. The Community Site for Waxholm Space contains information for end users and developers wishing to register or share their data.Waxholm space image

Waxholm Space (WHS) acts as the hub of a centralized infrastructure connecting several key reference spaces.
