DAWN, the Data Analysis WorkbeNch, is an Eclipse based application for scientific data analysis.
It comes with a range of tools for visualization (1D, 2D and 3D), code development environments (for Python, Jython and Eclipse plug-ins) as well as processing workflows with visual algorithms for analyzing scientific datasets.
It is primarily developed at Diamond Light Source, but external contributions are most welcome!
DAWN is distributed freely and is released under the Eclipse Public License.
