SLDC is an open-source Python framework created for accelerating development of large image analysis workflows. It is especially well suited for solving more or less complex problems of object detection and classification in multi-gigapixel images.

The framework encapsulates problem-independent logic such as parallelism, memory constraints (due to large image handling) while providing a concise way of declaring problem-dependent components of the implementer's workflows.

It was initially developed in the context of my master thesis. The source code can be found on GitHub at this repository.
