This function can load binary 3D amira images and label files that are zipped, RLE encoded, or uncompressed. Supports all data types. The unzip routine is a modification of the zlib implementation by Michael Kleder, Nov 2005. Make sure to increase you java heap size to load in large zlib compressed files (see: I suggest using 512MB or 1024MB
