Request: plot simulated and experimental data together in the same units, the same scale, with the same ROI and the same masks.

1. If detector resolution is present, masked area looks noisy. To avoid that, I set the all masked bins to have zero signal:

result = simulation.result().histogram2d(ba.AxesUnits.MM)
for i in range(result.getTotalNumberOfBins()):
    if simulation.getInstrument().getDetectorMask().isMasked(i):
        result.setBinContent(i, 0)

Better would be if simulation would return already correct result, so that this step will not be necessary any more.

2. There is no way to apply the mask to the experimental data. The work around is:

def apply_mask(from_data, to_data):
    for i in range(from_data.getTotalNumberOfBins()):
        if from_data.getBinContent(i) == 0:
            to_data.setBinContent(i, 0)

to be continued
