The growing attractivenessv of two-dimensional detectors in powder diffraction does brings with it one severe drawback – the 2D to 1D data reduction. This can be a most time consuming and error prone operation, especially when the artifacts of the sample environment affect the intensities. Some developments in the field of calibrating, filtering and evaluation are presented. A selection of applications will be given throughout the oral presentation.
