Analysis of multichannel ECG recordings (body surface maps and
endocardial maps) requires special software. Both interactive usage of
a fast and robust user interface and batch job processing for the
analysis of large amounts of data is necessary. In addition, the
package should be user-extensible, because new techniques for the
analysis of multichannel ECGs are continuously under development, and
it should not take very much time to develop. We wrote a package using
an interactive computational program (MATLAB). The package includes
routines for both common and experimental data processing tasks, as
well as an extensive user interface. Sources are well documented using
the WEB system, and available to the users. Any part of the package
can be changed by the user, and new parts can be added. The package is
used by its authors and several researchers from associated research
