We present a custom MacOS-based application, ADAM, for analysis of data collected by a three-dimensional atom probe (3DAP). The application is designed to carry out a common set of analysis tasks, to be customizable, to provide easy export and import of data, and to be simple enough for novice users to understand quickly. The integration of both graphical (GUI) and scripting (SUI) user interfaces and the functionality accessible from both is discussed. Different types of visualization can be used for best presentation of 3DAP data.
