More flexibility in webGraph++ data entry

January 26th, 2015

The datagrid in Nucleonica’s webGraph++ has been further developed to allow considerably more flexibility in transferring data from a spreadsheet to the webGraph++ datagrid.

It is now possible to:
– edit the default header entries (x,y; x1,y1; x2,y2; etc.) after data has been transferred from the spreadsheet
– delete a dataset (e.g. x4,y4)
– copy & paste a single column of data (e.g. the x-axis data)
– append the datagrid by copying a new (x,y) set of data from a spreadsheet into an existing set of data.

Nucleonica new graph features (2): xml & csv

January 21st, 2015

In the previous blog post, it was announced that graphs can be downloaded in a number of standard formats (png, gif, tiff, jpg, svg, pdf, eps, csv, xml). In contrast to the dedicated image formats, it is now also possible to download the graph data in csv and xml format. The format csv (comma separated values) is a text based format suitable for passing data only between different applications. The format xml (extensible markup language) is similar to html with the important difference that xml has definable tags.
In contrast to image formats, xml is also a text based format in which the text file contains not only the graph data to be plotted but in addition all the graph settings (title, type of axes, axis labels, legend, etc.).
A major advantage is that xml files can be directly uploaded into the user’s webGraph++ myGraphs. For the user this means that important graphs are then stored and can be managed in a single location in webGraph++.
The csv and xml downloads are now available in most Nucleonica applications (Decay Engine++, Dosimetry & Shielding++, Beta Dose Rate, Range & Stopping Power++, Cambio++, WESPA++, and Gamma Library++).

Nucleonica new graph features (1): Zoom & Move

January 19th, 2015

A number of new features have recently been added to the Nucleonica graphs. It is now possible to download the images in various standard formats, zoom into an area of interest and move the area of interest by dragging the mouse cursor.
Typical Nucleonica graph showing the graph download/format buttons and the zoom / move radio buttons.
* graph formats: the graphs – previously only available in svg format – can now be downloaded in a number of alternative standard formats including: png (default), gif, tiff, jpg, svg, pdf, eps, xml.
* Zoom feature: The cross-hair can also be used to zoom into a particular part of the graph by defining a rectangular area to be expanded. The + and – buttons can then be used to further zoom in or out of the selected area.
* Move feature: allows the use to move the underlying graph to view parts of the graph not shown in the selected area. This is particularly interesting when analysing spectra. After zooming into a particular area, the users can then use the mouse button to “move” the graph in the viewing area. This is done by placing the mouse cursor at an point in the graph and holding the left mouse button depressed. Then the depressed mouse button can be move in any direction to move the underlying graphic. On releasing the mouse cursor the graph is shown with the newly selected area.

Nucleonica Newsletter 2015

January 4th, 2015

2014 in Review…
Dear Nucleonica Users,
We thank you for your support during 2014 and look forward to your continued
feedback on our updated applications. As we enter our 5th year of operations, our major applications upgrade programme continues. Almost 80% of the Nucleonica applications have already been systematically upgraded with a view to improving user-friendliness and calculation response times. In this newsletter we summarise the latest key developments and describe the new features available.
The Newsletter is divided into the following three sections:
A. What’s New in Nucleonica: In 2014, the applications Nuclide Mixtures++, Gamma Library++, Range & Stopping Power++, Nuclide Search / Radiation Search++, webGraph++, Cambio++, and WESPA++ have all undergone major revision. The use of the “++” following the application name denotes the new version. A new application for the calculation of Beta Dose Rates was launched in November 2014. See more on the following pages.
B. Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online (KNCO): The new Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online (KNCO) has now been available since January 2014. The main advantage of the new online version is that through regular (almost daily) updates the KNCO is always up to date with the latest half-lives and energies of the most important emitted radiations. For more information see pages 10-11.
C. Training Courses: We provide a short summary of the various courses held in the past year. The next Nucleonica training course will be held on 15-16 April 2015 in Karlsruhe. Early registration is encouraged. In 2015, Nucleonica again provides dedicated training courses for your organisation on request. We hope you will find this Newsletter helpful and informative.
Very best wishes for 2015
Joseph Magill
