Initiated in 1997, at the Materials Laboratory of the University of the Basque Country, Spain, the Bilbao Crystallographic Server has since been offering its crystallographic and solid state programs and utilities, free of charge.

Due to the variety of the topics related, the programs hosted on the server are grouped into the so called shells which are:

  • Space Groups Retrieval Tools
  • Magnetic Space Groups
  • Group - Subgroup Relations of Space Groups
  • Representation Theory Applications
  • Solid State Theory Applications
  • Structure Utilities
  • Subperiodic Groups: Layer, Rod and Frieze Groups Retrieval Tools
  • The Bilbao Inconmensurate Crystal Structure Database

Usage Statistics

The server is acknowledged by researchers and scholars from all around the world. It has a monthly average of 13700 visitors generating 145000 hits (2011 stats).

Direct Academical Output

Two main events (Crystallography Online: International School on the Use and Applications of the Bilbao Crystallographic Server, 21/06 – 27/06 2009, Lekeitio/Spain and ITOn!, 31/08 - 03/09 2011, Bilbao/Spain) and many workshops on the usage of the applications on the Bilbao Crystallographic Server have been organized, bringing the international users of the server together.

Numerous articles containing work originating from the server have been published in internationally reviewed journals, as well as proceedings presented in conferences and meetings.

World Wide Web Recognition

In addition to the citations to the articles related to the server, the server has also been indexed and linked by libraries, research groups and academicians all over the world.
