This chapter describes procedures for image processing, display and analysis. AFM data is particularly suitable for further processing and analysis, and has some particular requirements, due to the three‐dimensional nature of the date obtained. Proper use of image processing techniques is important in order to enable further analysis while accurately reflecting the real nature of the sample, and avoiding the introduction of errors. Various methods of optimizing the display of the data are described, and their suitability for different uses is compared. In addition, there are many powerful analysis routines for AFM data, which can be essential to extract the most information from image data. This chapter describes how to maintain data integrity, and how to optimize and process the data for best effect.
