SparkSpotter is a plugin for the ImageJ image analysis platform. It is designed to identify short, bright 'spark' events in movies. It was originally designed to work with microsopy images of cell stained with flourescent dyes, but can probably be applied to many different types of input.
SparkSpotter works on 8 or 16 bit greyscale image stacks (movies). It can analyse either single or multiple pixels stacks looking for frames which show a sudden increase in intensity. It has the ability to smooth out any longer term changes in the overall brightness of the images.
The program features an interactive viewer to allow you to review the events SparkSpotter has found. You can also export the list of events from the viewer.
