The Cartool Community site and discussion group are dedicated to the users of the Cartool Software, from the Functional Brain Mapping Lab:
  • The Cartool Community (this site) is actually a Google Sites, a user editable Web site containing the User's Guide, FAQs, files etc...
  • The Discussion group is a separate Google Groups holding the Discussions forum. You shouldn't bother, though, as you can access it seamlessly from the Cartool Community site.

Cartool Community site

This site is made from contributions from anybody wishing to share some knowledge of the use of Cartool for a specific task. So basically, either in the User's Guide or in the FAQs. There is also a Files section for files needed for the most common operations.

To make things easier, the Cartool Discussions is embedded into this website, so you shouldn't have to go to the separate Discussion group.

For the moment, an administrator of the site has to manually add new contributors to the site, so if you are not already registered, please just send a mail to Cartool-Medecine@unige.ch.

Cartool discussion group

You can not join this Google Groups on its own anymore. In fact, by registering to the Cartool Community and Cartool Licence agreement, you will be automatically added to the group.
