Many problems in analytical spectroscopy require insight from several different techniques to adequately resolve the problem. A common difficulty with using several techniques is often the ability to manage the various data types and making the data available for review, analysis and reporting. This can involve several pieces of software for viewing and analysis along with a cut and paste approach for reporting. Additional problems arise when it is desired to include structures or to keep all of the relevant data together for use when addressing similar problems in the future. This paper will look at one approach to this problem that simplifies the tasks of data handling, data management and reporting when dealing with IR, Raman, and X-Ray Fluorescence spectra.
