Apply Merger Mode Annotation

This example applies a merger mode annotation to a segmentation.

It downloads a sample dataset with a sample annotation. The annotation has been created with "merger mode", where skeleton trees are used to merge segments. Read more about the merger mode in the webKnossos documentation. The example then uses the Dataset API and fastremap module for reading, remapping and rewriting the segmentation layer.

This example additionally needs the fastremap package.
