EBSD map GUI

This GUI allows to analyze quantitatively slip transmission across grain boundaries for an EBSD map.

The Matlab function used to run the EBSD map GUI is : A_gui_plotmap.m

This includes:

Loading EBSD data

For more details about the format of the EBSD data, see also the page Experimental data.

Smoothing GBs segments

The smoothing algorithm allows to decrease the total number of grains boundaries in order to speed up calculations and plots.

The Matlab function used to smooth GBs is : interface_map_GB_segments_opti.m
