Kasigra is an application for viewing and editing images generated by atomic force microscope Explorer.
Currently it's in early development state and it provides just:
Kasigra currently cannot do analysis (line cross-sections, roughness parameters etc.), it only calls extern application and takes its
- opening files - binary files saved with SPMLab(R) with height information (raw and processed, e.g. *.zfr, *.tfr, *.zfp, *.tfp), text
files in "matrix" form (with or without header), and Kasigra's own format *.ksg (not compatible with any other
format and dependent on the program development);
- saving files - in format *.ksg (full information), binary SPMLab format (lossy, but SPMLab can open this output) and text format;
- viewing files in 2D (top view) and 3D representation with different palettes;
- copying those views to X clipboard as images;
- printing images;
- viewing data table and process some mathematical operations with the image data (in development yet);
- removing basic artifacts (stripes);
- calling extern application to data editing;
- editing palettes;
- doing image processing (leveling);
- doing image editing (zoom or resample).
Kasigra offers basic integration with KDE - thumbnail generator, KFilePlugin (metadata) and Kimgio (KDE applications
can open those files as image).
- remove some bugs
- create icons, use toolbars
- processing and analysis functions (line analysis, roughness, FFT, ...)
- better input of original files (3D parameters, acquisition settings, ...)
- add new bugs

Here you can download latest version of Kasigra, released under GNU GPL. Kasigra needs Linux with KDE 3.x.
Kasigra is distributed without any warranty, use it on your own risk.
Here are data files (palettes, kernels).
- kasigra-0.1.tar.bz2 (October 12, 2002), most algorithms work but are not optimized - hand-calculation can be faster :-)
You can also download three samples or two samples.
