I wonder if a survey on the skimage website would be helpful. I.e., "Using
skimage? Please let us know!" with a link to a short survey. What do you think?
It sounds like a great idea! For companies that are not familiar with the scientific Python ecosystem, it is very reassuring to know that other companies are using a package.
Thanks a lot Emmanuelle and Stefan for following up on this thread. I think a survey would be useful to have an overview of what the scikit-image user base looks like, and what parts of the library are mostly used. You could have anonymised questions and also ask whether people accept to have their organisation/company named on a "Who uses scikit-image?" page.
Now that you have the scikit-image paper, it is easy to track academic works that use scikit-image: https://scholar.google.co.uk/scholar?cites=9047602530582533931&as_sdt=20...
Keeping track of companies is more tricky, and looking at the Python meetings (Scipy, Pydata,...) speakers/attendees/sponsors is the only easy way I see.
An advantage for companies to publicly mention they use scikit-image is that Python developers looking for jobs would probably start by having a look at the career page of companies that rely on their favourite modules. And it's free advertising.
