Making Graphs with GraphTool

The graphic program GraphTool is part of the SciDex technology. GraphTool is an easy-to-use graphic program for viewing, analyzing and plotting scientific data. Although it is specially designed for the use with SciDex, GraphTool can be used as a standalone program (for details refer to the installation guide of SciDex).

GraphTool provides a lot of features to let you look at your data in a number of different ways e.g. 2- and 3-dimensional graph’s with linear, semi-log and log-log axes scaling. You can analyze your data with the implemented standard tools for linear regression, standard deviation, polynoms higher order, cubic spline and mean, minimum and maximum value of a curve. Also it is possible to calculate user defined mathematical formulas.

The graph can be designed by the user in various ways. You can change titles (including the Greek alphabet), symbols, line styles, colors, axis scaling and many more. It is easy to print the graph on your printer or to copy the graph or the data into the clipboard and paste the graph in any text document or paste the data in MS-Excel.

The graphs have clickable text and axes. Move the mousepointer on a text and double-click. The data editor for changing text will be opened. Move the mousepointer over an axis, if the mousepointer changes to a cross double-click and the dialog window for axis design will be opened.

The mousepointer also changes to a cross if the current mouseposition is the position of a data point of a curve. Press a mouse button to see the x- and y-value of the current point, if there are notes, the related note entry in the note list will be highlighted.

You can scale the graph-window on the screen, but the screen scaling will not be used for the clipboard or the printer!

Limits:

Number of Values per Curve: 32000
Number of Variables per Curve: 75
Number of Curves per Graphic: 200
Number of Graphics on Screen: 5
