Introduction
WCEN is a fiber diffraction pattern processing program developed at FiberNet. The program displays fiber diffraction patterns, determines diffraction parameters, corrects systematic effects and maps diffraction data into reciprocal space. WCEN provides highly customizable colormaps great for visualizing images with dynamic ranges of intensity (often the case in fiber diffraction). Its data plotting, image filtering and manipulation routines are also useful for general scientific image processing.
