SASView, previously called SANSView, is a free SANS data model-fitting package developed by the University of Tennessee as part of the Distributed Data Analysis of Neutron Scattering Experiments (DANSE) software project funded by the US National Science Foundation. Many of the models in SASView are those written and developed by Steve Kline, and used for many years in the NIST IGOR-based data analysis package; ie, they are tried-and-tested! SASView is an alternative to the ISIS FISH package, with many similar models, but whereas the legacy Fortran code of FISH is no longer being actively developed or extended, SASView is based around the Python language thereby making it an obvious choice for development and integration alongside Mantid. For this reason the ISIS SANS Team will be working with the SASView developers to ensure that, as far as possible, SASView reflects the needs of our User community.
