    3 The goal of the VeSPA project is to utilize current software engineering "best practices" to refactor three existing and widely used MRS software packages, written by the authors and their colleagues, to create an integrated open source package for performing and analyzing MRS experiments. VeSPA, the resulting integrated package, provides a greatly enhanced, more complete, easier to use, and easier to extend set of tools for MRS simulation and analysis.

    55The original applications were written in closed source languages ([http://cds.ismrm.org/ismrm-2003/0852.pdf GAVA/Gamma] and IDL_Vespa in [http://www.ittvis.com/ProductServices/IDL.aspx IDL], and [http://www.mmrrcc.upenn.edu/downloads/matpulse.html MatPulse] in [http://www.mathworks.com/ Matlab]) that have licensing issues (primarily restricted use and substantial fees) that make their use for scientific collaboration problematic, as well as make them relatively difficult to extend and virtually impossible to integrate.
