MountainsSPIP™ Key Features for SPIP Users

Since SPM specialists Image Metrology and Digital Surf joined forces a few years back, development teams from both companies have been working hard to create the next generation of SPM image analysis software, based on the industry- standard Mountains® platform and including all the best SPIP™ interactivity and analytical tools. Here we will highlight some of the new key features which our SPIP™ users will benefit from.

Correlated Analysis

Researchers wishing to explore a sample beyond the limitations of one single instrument technology need look no further than MountainsSPIP 8TM. Whether working with data from 3D optical profilers, AFM, SEM, fluorescence, Raman, IR or other microscopes, users benefit from powerful detection tools which allow them to easily manage data at different scales (see image above).

Density maps, SEM, fluorescence and other images can easily be overlaid on surface topography to facilitate the correlative study of features.





Workflow Control and Navigation

Thanks to its unique analysis workflow (see image below), MountainsSPIP™ makes it easy to keep track of analysis steps already applied to data and instantly revert back to any step in the process. Even better, any step can be edited, resulting in all dependent steps being automatically recalculated.

Document Interface and Templating

When working with MountainsSPIP™ it is like working with a document where you can control the exact layout of multiple pages ready for impressive printed reports. As MountainsSPIP™ keep track of the workflow any modification of a processing step, for example change of filter parameters, will immediately propagate down to the connected images, charts and numerical results, and the document will be update accordingly. Therefore, you can easily create a new report with the same layout just by replacing the input image/data. You may even save the report and use it as a template for batch processing and reporting your data files.
