SpectraScan is a little helper program for those unlucky persons, who
don't get their spectrums in an appropriate computer readable format,
but on dead tree.
This SpectraScan allows to convert a variety of spectrum types into
a comma separated value format, which is suitable to be loaded into
Excel or a statistic program.
Another feature is the ability to 'scan' the axes of a spectrum. In the
image below two points for the x-axis have been marked with the x-scale
button. Now it is possible to get the value of each point on the x-axis.
In the image below the absolute minimum of the curve lies at 3385 units.
To export a curve everything what is not curve has to be removed. This can
either be done by manual clipping, or manual erasing non-curve points.
Or an image filter can be applied. The image below shows a clean curve,
which is ready to be exported.
In the last image the spectrum can be seen, which was exported in CSV format
and plotted using gnuplot. The only thing to do to get a usable computer
readable spectrum is a curve fit.
More documentation can be found in the help menu of the program. The program
development is in beta stage. There still might appear small changes in the userinterface and
maybe a couple of minor features will be added, however, the main line of development will
be the development of filter plugins.
