DAVE: The Data Analysis and Visualization Environment

Rob Dimeo, Richard Azuah, and Przemek Klosowski

DAVE is an integrated environment for the reduction, visualization and analysis of inelastic neutron scattering data. The main objective of DAVE is to provide a user friendly toolkit for scientists involved in neutron scattering research to quickly reduce, visualize and interpret their data. Much progress has been made towards achieving this goal and support for several neutron scattering spectrometers at the NCNR is included. Current support includes triple-axis, backscattering, time-of-flight, filter analyzer, and spin-echo spectrometers. It is built using IDL (Interactive Data Language) from Research Systems (*), Inc. which is a cross-platform application development tool with built-in advanced analysis and visualization capabilities. DAVE is available with an embedded IDL license at no cost to users on the Linux, Windows and MacOS X platforms ( For those who have an IDL development license, the complete source code for DAVE is available.
