Gamma Scout Tools is a software system to be used to manage the Gamma Scout geiger counters. The program is able to:

  • read out data from the counter;
  • display and plot them;
  • save them to local files in the user desired format.

New features may be added in the future. GammaScoutTools has a GUI built on the Qt libraries and a self explanatory help on line system. It is based on the Gamma Scout Utilities developed by Johannes Bauer and inherites the data plotting capabilities from the Gammma Scout Decoder developed by  Lionel Bergeret. To use the tool, add yourself to the dialout group.
