DPDAK is an open source (GPL) tool developed for (online) analysis of large sequences of small angle scattering data - but can be used for other data as well. It is written in Python and runs on Windows and Linux. The development is a cooperation between DESY and MPIKG.
The standard SAXS/WAXS integration and calibration uses algorithms from the pyFAI package by Jerome Kieffer (ESRF). The SAXS Integration (Fit2D) uses Fit2D software developed by Dr. Andy Hammersley (ESRF).
4.5.2015: Version 1.2.0 of DPDAK is released and can be recieved from the Download page.
13.4.2015: An overview of DPDAK (and DAWN) has been reported to the Spring Meeting of the High Data Rate Initiative (HDRI) of the Helmholtz association.
31.7.2014: DPDAK version 1.0.0.
