The reconstruction problem has arisen in a large number of scientific fields (including computed tomography, electron microscopy, radiology, radio astronomy and holography). Many different methods (algorithms) have been suggested for its solution. SNARK09 is a programming system for the reconstruction of 2D images from 1D projections. It is designed to help researchers interested in developing and evaluating reconstruction algorithms. In the area of image reconstruction, researchers often desire to compare two or more reconstruction techniques and assess their relative merits. SNARK09 provides a uniform framework in which to implement algorithms and evaluate their performance. SNARK09 has been designed to treat both parallel and divergent projection geometries and can create test data for use by reconstruction algorithms. A number of frequently used reconstruction algorithms are incorporated.
