Python implementation of the MSA / MAS / AMAS Hyper-Dimensional Data File specification

Project description


pyHMSA is a pure Python implementation of the MSA / MAS / AMAS HyperDimensional Data File (HMSA, for short) specifications. This file format is intended to be a common exchange format for microscopy and microanalysis data. More information about the file format and its specifications can be found here.

The library is designed to be minimalist, leaving post-processing of the data to the user’s script. The only dependency of pyHMSA is to NumPy, in order to represent the multi-dimensional data.

pyHMSA is written to support both Python 3.6+.

The library is provided under the MIT license.
