I changed the superbuild to use ITK 5 with compatibilty and fixed some straightforward issues. This branch can be used for further investigations @floca : some ideas about the geometry issues would be very helpful. The migration guide has an overview on the topic but my experience in that area is limited

I had a swift look into ITK and our code base and I would guess the following:

  • mitkBaseGeometry.h: typedef itk::AffineGeometryFrame<ScalarType, 3> AffineGeometryFrame3D can be completly removed because it is not used any more in our code base
  • mitkAffineGeometry3D.h: typename itk::AffineGeometryFrame<ScalarType, 3>::TransformType AffineTransform3D; can be replaced with using AffineTransform3D = itk::ScalableAffineTransform<ScalarType, 3>

That should do the trick, if I have not missed something. Pressing thumbs.

@floca : thanks. Not the whole trick but helped a lot. I will follow up with more geometry questions later ;)

For now if someone wants to pick up work on this, there are some uncurated fixes here which are correct but have to be cleaned up before pushing to MITK repo:
