This year saw the formation of the DAWN Steering Committee; a collection of Diamond scientists selected to help guide the fundamental data visualisation features and general usability of the DAWN package. Under the supervision of the committee, a completely new 3D visualisation library has been integrated, greatly adding to DAWN’s existing tools.
The DataVis perspective developed in collaboration with the committee also integrates with the latest version of GDA, and is being used for live visualisation of raw and processed data on the XPDF beamline (I15-1).
This year at Diamond, we hosted one of the Eclipse Science group and Internet of Things (IoT) workshops, which involved several invited talks and an IoT playground. Participants from Diamond, around the Harwell campus and the wider business community all enjoyed the excellent presentations and demos which showcased the state of the art in software for science.
2017 saw the release of Savu version 2.0, which features an improved user interface and significant performance increases. The roll-out of Savu onto Diamond’s mapping tomography beamlines has reduced multi-modal processing from eight hours to ten minutes, and Savu is now able to replicate the standard full-field tomography processing of its predecessor in less computational time.
We wish to thank all our collaborators, Diamond beamline staff and users for their continued support and input.
