Gwyddion is a modular program for SPM (scanning probe microscopy) data visualization and analysis. Primarily it is intended for analysis of height fields obtained by scanning probe microscopy techniques (AFM, MFM, STM, SNOM/NSOM), however it can be generally used for any other height field and image analysis, for instance for analysis of profilometry data or electron microscopy (learn more about Gwyddion features).

Gwyddion is Free and Open Source software, covered by GNU General Public License. It aims to provide multiplatform modular program for 2D data analysis that could be easily extended by modules and plug-ins. Moreover, the status of free software enables to provide source codes to developers and users, which makes the further program improvement easier.

This team provides builds of Gwyddion for current and previous Ubuntu releases, before they appear into the official Ubuntu (and backports) repository. Please note that the team will provide binaries for previous releases as long as the Launchpad building system will support those releases. In the case where the building system will not support old releases, this PPA will provide the last builds that were possible to compile. We strongly recommend to update to a more recent version of Ubuntu.

Some versions of Ubuntu are no longer supported through the Launchpad PPA system, so updated builds for those releases will be no longer available.
For these releases, it is strongly recommended to upgrade to the current release of Ubuntu.
