frame_integrate: A generalized suite for spatial integration of two-dimensional diffraction data
frame_integrate is a suite of programs that perform front-end data
reduction (spatial integration) of 2D diffraction images from all
common imaging detectors (e.g. multi-wire detectors, image plate
scanners, CCD detectors). The package includes image data
visualizers and graphical interfaces that permit the user to program
a large variety of spatial integrations (eg. circular, sectorial, azimuthal,
summing along norms to central and arbitrary vectors). frame_integrate also
optimizes many experimental parameters (e.g. beam center, distortion and
mis-setting of detector orientation, sample-to-detector distance,
etc). The integrators compensate for a variety of projective distortions
(e.g. detector inclination, incomensurate x- and y-detector scales).
The suite is freely distributed and documented via the webb in executable
form for Linux, Irix, Solaris and OSF at URL:
Currently supported detector formats include: Mar 300 and 345,
Raxis II and IV, all Fuji scanners, SMV compliant CCD systems.
Modifications are underway for output under the NEXUS framework and
input using run-time-defined detector formats.
