1.1 Metadata

Every scan folder has a document.txt file that contains information about the parameters of the scan. For example, it contains the current and voltage settings used for the x-ray tube, the step size, and the start and stop positions of the scan. It is a text file, although the formatting can be inconsistently rendered depending on the text editor used. Sometimes this information is required to process other parts of the data, and as such it is an important part of the overall data package.
