Default Graphing software

Hi all,

I have just finished my studies at university and got a real job, and unfortunately at my new workplace I am expected to use MS Excel to perform data analysis. This is driving me crasy because Excel is not designed for data analysis.

Can anyone suggest some good packages? I used Tecplot at uni and that was very good, but it is a bit expensive. We only really do X/Y plots and never do 2D or 3D plots, so something simpler might be cheaper.

Any suggestions?

Regards, Glenn

XMGR is an alternative for X/Y plot.

Try gnuplot (www.gnuplot.org), I think there is also a WINDOWS version available (http://gnuplot-py.sourceforge.net). Probable you find some more situated hompages at the web.

Buy a book on Excel graphing, it has some advanced functions which you donot know. And the Visual Basic for Applications allows you to process your jobs in batch. Spend some time on Excel, it will create nice x/y plot no worse than Tecplot or Origin or others. For Tecplot, you need strict format. For Origin, you need too many manual operations. Excel can finish most of their function, or you can develop some functions for you own. It is powerful than you expected.

I have had pretty good results with XMGRACE (XMGR is the old name). It is free and does basically XY plots and has all the bells and whistles to obtain publication quality plots.

XMGR works quite well and fast with plenty of options. Take in mind too thatExcel may have more advantanges than you expect, and maybe it is good to go further on it.
