Graphical user interfaces (GUI) are extremely useful tools for
interacting with data and allowing for simplified workflows where
users with minimal coding experience can obtain meaningful results,
thus bringing the software to a wider audience. Mantid already
contains a number of interfaces allowing for data processing and
visualization, with the most important point of entry being the
workbench. A number of additional interfaces has been identified as
crucial and recently implemented for the smooth processing of data at
the Institut Laue-Langevin, which streamline raw data exploration
(Raw-data explorer), simultaneous plotting of many curves (Superplot),
and interaction with reduction algorithms in the background (DrILL).
The use cases and benefits of new Mantid GUIs for ILL and for wider
Mantid public are presented, and future developments are discussed.
