MANTiS is Multivariate ANalysis Tool for Spectromicroscopy. Spectromicroscopy combines spectral data with microscopy, where typical datasets consist of a stack of microscopic images taken across a range of energies. Manual analysis of these complex datasets can be extremely time consuming and unlikely to uncover all the hidden traits in the data.

With this in mind we have developed MANTIS, an open source tool developed in Python for spectromicroscopy data analysis. Our goal is to provide a data analysis tool which is comprehensive, yet intuitive and easy to use. MANTIS is designed to lead the user through the analysis using story boards that describe each step in detail so that both experienced users and beginners are able to analyze their own data independently.

Pre-compiled versions of Mantis for Windows, Mac OS and Linux can be downloaded at

The free open source Python code for Mantis is available at
Mantis code repository on Bitbucket.
