Interactive web analysis and presentation of computer-controlled scanning electron microscopy data
In the following we describe the result of the Titan Project, an interactive web application (Titan) developed at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) together with DuPont Titanium Technologies. The main aim of Titan is to make computer-controlled scanning electron microscopy (CCSEM) data, generated at GEUS, available via the internet. In brief, CCSEM is a method automatically to detect particles with a scanning electron microscope (SEM), and based on computer-controlled imagery to measure the chemistry and grain morphology of each particle in a given sample (Knudsen et al. 2005; Bernstein et al. 2008); Keulen et al. 2008. Titan makes data available on-line so that the user can interact with the data sets and analyse them using a web browser. In addition to CCSEM data, Titan contains a global database of titanium deposits and various reports. The web application is customised, such that the functionality and amount of data available for a given user depend on the privileges of that user.
