Welcome to signac’s documentation!

The signac framework aids in the management of large and heterogeneous data spaces.

It provides a simple and robust data model to create a well-defined indexable storage layout for data and metadata. This makes it easier to operate on large data spaces, streamlines post-processing and analysis and makes data collectively accessible.
