ASpecD – Analysis of Spectroscopic Data
ASpecD is a framework for handling spectroscopic data focussing on reproducibility. In short: Each and every processing step applied to your data will be recorded and can be traced back. Additionally, for each representation of your data (e.g., figures, tables) you can easily follow how the data shown have been processed and where they originate from.
What is even better: Actual data processing and analysis no longer requires programming skills, but is as simple as writing a text file summarising all the steps you want to have been performed on your dataset(s) in an organised way. Curious? Have a look at its documentation.
About the Author/Developer: The author of ASpecD is a scientist in the field of physical chemistry and spectroscopy. He has more than fifteen years of practical experience with everyday laboratory work and a penchant for the traceability of data acquisition and processing. In addition, he has developed two relatively extensive and proven evaluation programs for spectroscopic data that form the basis for developing the ASpecD framework.
