An AFM image analysis program to batch process data and obtain statistics from images.
There is more complete documentation on the projects documentation website.
TopoStats is available via PyPI and can be installed in your Virtual Environment with...
pip install topostats
For more on installation and how to upgrade please see the installation instructions.
For a full description of usage please refer to the usage documentation.
A default configuration is loaded automatically and so the simplest method of processing images is to run
run_topostats in the same directory as your scans after having activated the virtual environment in which you have
If you have your own YAML configuration file (see Usage : Configuring
TopoStats) then invoke
run_topostats and use
the argument for
--config <config_file>.yaml that points to your file.
# Edit and save my_config.yaml then run TopoStats with this configuration file run_topostats --config my_config.yaml
The configuration file is validated before analysis begins and if there are problems you will see errors messages that are hopefully useful in resolving the error(s) in your modified configuration.
You can generate a sample configuration file using the
--create-config-file argument which takes a single argument,
the name of the file to save the configuration to (e.g.
settings.yaml). This will not run any
analyses but will instead write the default configuration to the file
config.yaml in the current directory.
NB - This feature is only available in versions > v2.0.0 as it was introduced after v2.0.0 was released.
run_topostats --create-config-file config.yaml
Example Jupyter Notebooks are in have been developed that show how to use TopoStats package interactively which is useful when you are unsure of what parameters are most suited to your scans. Other notebooks exist which show how to produce plots of the summary grain and tracing statistics or how to generate plots of scans from processed images which saves having to run the processing again. See the documentation on Notebooks for further details.
