High resolution imaging poses analysis challenges in the daily lives of high-resolution imaging researchers (high res. MRI, histology). One challenge is flattening patches of the cortex to study the cortical topography. We demonstrate a method that works in volume without requiring triangular meshes to represent the cortical surfaces at any stage of the algorithm. This approach for surface mapping enables mesoscopic analysis of cortical architecture. Our method is specifically developed for -but not limited to- flattening patches of the cortex. We implement our patch flattening as a C++ program and make it freely available within LayNii v2.1.0.
