Geological strain analysis is a common task for structural geologists. This contribution presents software written on top of the Mathematica platform which allows for rapid semi-automatic strain analysis. After an initial step of manual identification of strain markers, the software performs image analysis, parameter extraction and strain analysis using the shape and relative spatial positioning of markers. Bootstrap estimates of sampling errors are calculated and suitable graphical output is generated. Three representative samples of lithologies typically used in strain analysis are analysed to test the software. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
