Dataset API

The high-level dataset API automatically reads and writes meta information for any dataset and updates them if necessary, such as the datasource-properties.json.

A dataset (webknossos.dataset.dataset.Dataset) is the entry-point for this API. The dataset stores the data on disk in .wkw-files (see WEBKNOSSOS-wrap (wkw)).

Each dataset consists of one or more layers (webknossos.dataset.layer.Layer), which themselves can comprise multiple magnifications (webknossos.dataset.mag_view.MagView).
