Graphoskop is a software tool for the critical examination of historical handwriting. Developed as a plug-in for the open-source software ImageJ, it may be used for gathering quantitative data by taking specific measurements from digital facsimiles of handwritten material.

It makes it easier and quicker to apply quantitative methods concerning scripts as well as the layout of whole pages— to descriptions of single items or surveys of larger quantities, by subjecting the collected data to basic statistical operations and exporting the results to a spreadsheet.

Such quantitative methods make it possible to use analytical observations in a synthetic perspective, so as to assess general developments, e.g. by tracing the emergence and subsequent dissemination of any given graphic phenomenon, before asking questions as to why and how it occurred.
