  • Description

    mag_distortion_estimate is used to estimate magnification distortions in electron micrographs using images of polycrystalline samples such as gold shadowed diffraction gratings. The measured distortion at a particular magnification can then be corrected in images of the sample using mag_distortion_correct. Both programs read images that are stored in MRC/CCP4 format.
