Return the raw data for a CATMAID neuronal skeleton

catmaid_get_compact_skeleton(skid, pid = 1L, conn = NULL,
  connectors = TRUE, tags = TRUE, raw = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

skid

single skeleton id

pid

project id (default 1)

conn

the catmaid_connection object

connectors

Whether to fetch connector information

tags

Whether to fetch tag information

raw

Whether to return completely unprocessed data (when TRUE) or to convert the nodes and connectors lists into processed data.frames (when FALSE, the default)

...

Additional arguments passed to the catmaid_fetch function.

Value

An R list object with three elements

  • nodes A data frame containing XYZ location, node identifiers etc for each point in the neuron.

  • connectors A data frame containing the position and tree node identifiers for the synaptic partners.

  • tags A list containing one vector for each named tag; the vectors contain node ids that are also present in the nodes element.

Details

Note that by default this fetches both skeleton and connector (synapse) information.

Examples

if (FALSE) { ## ensure that you have done something like # conn=catmaid_login() # at least once this session to connect to the server skel=catmaid_get_compact_skeleton(10418394) # no connector (i.e. synapse) information skel=catmaid_get_compact_skeleton(10418394, connectors = FALSE) }
