pymcaroitool — PyMca region-of-interest imaging X application

Synopsis

pymcaroitool [OPTIONS]... [FILE(S)]

Description

Start the graphical user interface of the PyMca X-Ray Fluorescence Toolkit region-of-interest imaging tool.

This tool is best suited for handling datasets that can be represented by three-dimensional arrays. Typical cases are stacks of images (first dimension is image number) or 2D maps of 1D spectra (last dimension is spectrum channel number).
It allows to display maps of particular regions of the spectra or spectra of a particular region of the map.

A system of plugins allow to extend the capabilities of this tool. Plugins for multivariate analysis are already built in.

If FILE is given, it will be opened in the program provided its format is supported.

Examples

pymcaroitool

Start the program with a file browser to select the input files.

pymcaroitool file_0001.edf

Tries to open the file named file_0001.edf and all indexed files of the form file_????.edf where ???? is a number.

pymcaroitool --imagestack=1 file_0001.edf

Tries to open the file named file_0001.edf and all indexed files of the form file_????.edf where ???? is a number as a set of images.

pymcaroitool uncompressed_tiff_file_0001.tif

Tries to open a series of uncompressed TIFF files as an image stack.

pymcaroitool --begin=100 --end=200 --filepattern=file_%05d.edf

Start the program loading the single indexed files from file_00100.edf to file_00200.edf

pymcaroitool --begin=10,100 --end=20,200 --filepattern=row%d_col%03d.dat

Load the double indexed files from row10_col100.dat, row10_col101.dat, ... to row20_col00199.dat, row20_col00200.dat

Caveats

If files f_000.xxx and f_001.xxx are present in the same directory, the program will always try to load both of them unless a cumbersome way using a file pattern is used.
