BINoculars is a tool for data reduction and analysis of large sets of surface diffraction data that have been acquired with a 2D x-ray detector. The intensity of each pixel of a 2D-detector is projected onto a 3-dimensional grid in reciprocal lattice coordinates using a binning algorithm. This allows fast acquisiton of high-resolution datasets and significant reduction of the data. The subsequent analysis then proceeds in reciprocal space. It has evolved from the specific needs of the ID03 beamline at the ESRF, but it has a modular design and can be easily adjust and extended to work with data from other beamlines or from other measurement techniques.
