  • Download PED Editor

    The Phase Equilibria Diagrams Editor digitizes various types of diagrams, including binary, ternary, and schematic diagrams, and data can be extracted. The PED Editor can also be used for general graph digitization and two-dimensional scientific drawing.

    I am surprised at how easy it is to draw one’s first phase diagram from an old image file within 15 minutes and yet capture a lot of the complexities of the phase equilibria. ~PED Editor user
