XtalView comes with example data that can be used for just this purpose.
The formats are ready for XtalView, of course, and contain real examples
of a protein solved by MIR.  The same examples are used in Duncan McRee's
book, _Practical Protein Crystallography_, which outlines the basic 
methods used to make the Patterson maps.
