Abstract: Light scattering studies are done by researchers of various scientific areas. As the calculation of the scattering behavior by small particles is rather complex, corresponding programs usually can be used for specific problems only and therefore a multitude of programs have been developed over the years. To enable researchers to find the best fitting one for their scattering problem a categorization scheme for such software is presented here. This scheme is used within an actual project to set up a new internet information portal on the topic of light scattering. The approach for the integration of the scheme as well as the implementation of a corresponding search tool is described in this article.
