The Data AcQuisition and Management, and Analysis System (DAQMAP) is used to handle data associated with the Langton Star Centre's research programme.


The DAQMAP LSC Converter

The DAQMAP LSC Converter is software that can convert single frame ASCII Matrix Outputs and ASCII X,Y C files, combined with their DSC Data, into LSC Files
The LSC File was devised as a solution to keep Meta-Data (The DSC file) and Data (Pixelman Frames) into a single file. The specification for LSC files can be found here: LSC Data Format V1

The Windows version of DAQMAP LSC Converter is available here: DAQMAP LSC Converter.
