Free and versatile software solution for chemical maps analysis
EPMA & SEM
XMapTools is an advanced analysis software for quantitative chemical analysis of solids in 1D, 2D and 3D.
It provides numerical tools and packages implemented in a guided and versatile environment that allows you to explore and visualise data in your own way.
For example, XMapTools includes a wide range of data processing options including routines for classification, segmentation, calibration and visualisation via single and multi-channel maps or via binary, ternary and spider diagrams.
Welcome XMapTools 4!
XMapTools 4 updates the core experience of XMapTools with a redesigned interface, the addition of machine learning algorithms for classification and new tools for data calibration and visualisation.
MACHINE LEARNING ALGORITHMS
Several machine learning algorithms are available for classification and segmentation of chemical data. Select pixel data to train a new classification model.
SMART DATA CALIBRATION
New dedicated modules are available to guide you through the standardisation of EPMA and LA-ICP-MS data. Data calibration is now faster and more accurate.
ADVANCED DATA EXPLORATION TOOLS
State-of-the-art interaction tools have been implemented to provide a completely new experience for all users. Import your existing project and start exploring your data on a new level.
Discover an expanded range of external functions that can be calculated instantly. This new package contains more functions than ever before.
How to obtain XMapTools?
XMapTools 4.2 (build 230619)
XMapTools 4 provides an optimal framework for chemical data analysis and correlative compositional mapping across multiple instruments (e.g. EPMA, LA-ICP-MS, CT-SCANNER, FTIR, etc.). This version of XMapTools 4.2 is distributed as a standalone application (Mac & Windows) and includes Bingo-Antidote 2. The source code is available on Github.
“I really enjoy using XMapTools 4, and I will keep it open the whole day when I work. I quickly standardised my maps of a whole thin section, and found amazing gradients in compositional zoning. Data from LA-ICP-MS or CT-scanner can also be used and calibrated in XMapTools 4. It is really a very powerful and versatile software, and a good friend for petrologists!”
“XMapTools 4 comes as a standalone application that is much more stable than previous versions. The mineral classification is better and the selection of various regions-of-interest for each mineral in the training phase reduces the number of mixing pixels.”
“XMapTools 4 greatly speeds up the processing for electron microprobe data. Many functions are applied instantaneously! Visualisation has improved and the program is very user-friendly. Excellent software!”
