What can SigmaPlot do for you?

SigmaPlot software helps you quickly create exact graphs

With the new Graph Properties user interface you can select the property category in the tree on the left and then change properties on the right. The change is immediately graphed and if you move your cursor off the panel then it becomes transparent and you can see the effect of your changes without leaving the panel. The "select left and change right" procedure makes editing your graphs quick and easy. SigmaPlot takes you beyond simple spreadsheets to help you show off your work clearly and precisely. With SigmaPlot, you can produce high-quality graphs without spending hours in front of a computer. SigmaPlot offers seamless Microsoft Office® integration, so you can easily access data from Microsoft Excel® spreadsheets and present your results in Microsoft PowerPoint® presentations.

The user interface also includes Microsoft Office style ribbon controls. And the tabbed window interface efficiently organizes your worksheets and graphs for easy selection. And these tabs may be organized into either vertical or horizontal tab groups. Graph Gallery and Notebook Manger panes may be moved to any position and easily placed using docking panel guides. You can add frequently used objects to the Quick Access Toolbar. For example you might want to add Notebook Save, Close All, Refresh Graph Page and Modify Plot.

 

Easy Data Visualization

Graphing software that makes data visualization easy

 

Graph creation starts with SigmaPlot's award-winning interface. Take advantage of ribbon collections of common properties, tabbed selection of graphs, worksheets and reports, right mouse button support and graph preferences. Select the graph type you want to create from the Graph Toolbar's easy-to-read icons. The interactive Graph Wizard leads you through every step of graph creation. You get compelling, publication-quality charts and graphs in no time. SigmaPlot offers more options for charting, modeling and graphing your technical data than any other graphics software package.

Compare and contrast trends in your data by creating multiple axes per graph, multiple graphs per page and multiple pages per worksheet. Accurately arrange multiple graphs on a page using built-in templates or your own page layouts with SigmaPlot's WYSIWYG page layout and zoom features.

More than 100 2-D and 3-D technical graph types

 

From simple 2-D scatter plots to compelling contour and the new radar and dot density plots, SigmaPlot gives you the exact technical graph type you need for your demanding research. And, to help you see interactions in your 3-D data, SigmaPlot powerfully renders multiple intersecting 3-D meshes with hidden line removal. With so many different chart and graph types to choose from, you can always find the best visual representation of your data.

Customize every detail of your charts and graphs

 

SigmaPlot offers the flexibility to customize every detail of your graph. You can add axis breaks, standard or asymmetric error bars and symbols; change colors, fonts, line thickness and more. Double-click on any graph element to launch the Graph Properties dialog box. Modify your graph, chart or diagram further by pasting an equation, symbol, map, picture, illustration or other image into your presentation. And select anti-aliasing to display jaggy-free smooth lines that can be used in your PowerPoint® presentations.

Quickly Plot your Data from Existing Graph Templates in the Graph Style Gallery

 

Save all of the attributes of your favorite graph style in the Graph Style Gallery. Add greater speed and efficiency to your analysis by quickly recalling an existing graph type you need and applying its style to your current dataset.

 

Quickly save any graph with all graph properties as a style and add a bitmap image to the gallery

No need to be an expert, create customized graphs in no time with the Graph Gallery

Choose an image from the Graph Style Gallery to quickly plot your data using an existing graph template

Save time by using a predetermined style to create a graph of the data

Avoid re-creating complex graphs

But, remember, you don't necessarily need to use the power of the Graph Gallery since every graph in SigmaPlot is a template. In the Notebook Manager, you can copy and paste a graph from one worksheet to another and all the attributes of that graph are applied to the new data saving much time.

Publish your charts and graphs anywhere

 

Create stunning slides, display your graphs in reports or further customize your graphs in drawing packages. Save graphs for publication in a technical journal, article or paper with SigmaPlot's wide range of graphic export options. Presenting and publishing your results has never been easier - or looked this good. Create customized reports with SigmaPlot's Report Editor or embed your graphs in any OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) container - word processors, Microsoft PowerPoint or another graphics program. Then, just double click your graph to edit directly inside your document. Quickly send your high-resolution graphs online to share with others.

Share high-quality graphs and data on the Web

Export your graphs ashigh-resolution, dynamic Web pages - not simple GIF or JPEG files. Viewers can explore data used to create vector graphs and zoom, pan or print images at any resolution directly from a Web Browser. Automatically generate active Web objects from your graphs or embed the objects within other Web pages.

  Share the data behind your web-based graphs with colleagues and students

  Enable colleagues to print your full report from your intranetor Web site directly from their browsers - without compromising the quality of the graphs

  Create an optional password while exporting your graph to limit data access to authorized users

  Produce Web documents without knowing HTML, or embed SigmaPlot Web object graphs in existing HTML files to create interactive electronic reports

SigmaP Data Analysis Doesn't Get Any Easier

lot provides all the fundamental tools you need to analyze your data from basic statistics to advanced mathematical calculations. Click the View Column Statistics button to instantly generate summary statistics including 95% and 99% confidence intervals. Run t-tests, linear regressions, non-linear regressions and ANOVA with ease. You can fit a curve or plot a function and get a report of the results in seconds. Use built-in transforms to massage your data and create a unique chart, diagram or figure. With SigmaPlot - it's all so simple!

Use SigmaPlot within Microsoft Excel

Access SigmaPlot right from your active Microsoft Excel worksheet. Tedious cut-and-paste data preparation steps are eliminated when you launch SigmaPlot's Graph Wizard right from the Excel toolbar. Use Excel in-cell formulas, pivot tables, macros and date or time formats without worry. Keep your data and graphs in one convenient file.

Transforms and Quick Transforms

Generate simulated data or modify worksheet columns of data with transforms. Create simple one-line transforms with the Quick Transforms feature that walks you through transform implementation. Or create extremely complex transforms with hundreds of lines of code.

Use the Regression Wizard to fit data easily and accurately

Fitting your data is easy with the SigmaPlot Regression Wizard. The Regression Wizard automatically determines your initial parameters, writes a statistical report, saves your equation to your SigmaPlot Notebook, and adds your results to existing graphs or creates a new one! The Regression Wizard accurately fits nearly any equation - piecewise continuous, multifunctional, weighted, Boolean functions and more - up to 10 variables and 25 parameters. You can even add your own curve fit equations and add them to the Regression Wizard.

Use the Dynamic Curve Fitter to determine if your fit is valid

The Dynamic Curve Fitter performs 200 or more curve fits using your equation and data starting from optimally different initial starting values. The results are ranked by goodness of fit so that you can check the top ranked results against the result you obtained from the Regression Wizard. For many simple equations, which are fit to data sets with a sufficiently large number of data points, the Dynamic Curve Fitter finds the same result as the Regression Wizard. But the problem is that the user simply does not know whether the solution found by the Regression Wizard is the best possible or not. So there is always a concern that the correct solution has not been found. Dynamic fitting minimizes this concern. Its use is encouraged prior to publishing results particularly if a complicated equation is used.

Use Global Curve Fitting to simultaneously analyze multiple data

Global curve fitting is used when you want to fit an equation to several data sets simultaneously. The selected equation must have exactly one independent variable. The data sets can be selected from a worksheet or a graph using a variety of data formats. You can also specify the behavior of each equation parameter with respect to the data sets. A parameter can be localized to have a separate value for each data set, or a parameter can be shared to have the same value for all data sets.

 

The Global Curve Fit Wizard is very similar to the Regression and Dynamic Fit Wizards in design and operation. The main difference is the extra panel shown below for specifying the shared parameters.

Plot Nearly ANY Mathematical Function

Plotting user-defined and parameterized equations is only a mouseclick away with the Plot Equation feature. Just type the function or select one from the built-in library and specify the parameters and the range. It's that simple! Create your own built-in functions and save them for future use. Plot functions on new or existing graphs or plot multiple functions simultaneously using different parameter values. Save plotted X and Y results to the worksheet

 

Obtain Data from Nearly Any Source

SigmaPlot has import file formats for all common text files. This includes a general purpose ASCII file importer which allows importing comma delimited files and user-selected delimiters. Plus all Excel formats may be imported. SPSS, Minitab, SYSTAT and SAS input data formats are supported by SigmaPlot. Axon binary and text electrophysiology files may be imported. Also the Electrophysiology module, purchased separately, allows importing specific parts of electrophysiology files from Axon Instruments ABF files, Bruxton Corporation's Acquire format and HEKA electronik's Pulse format. Import any ODBC compliant database. Excel and Access database files are supported. Run SQL queries on tables and selectively import information.

SigmaPlot now employs an all new user interface allowing users to easily setup a global curve fit. This gives users the ability to easily share one or more equation parameters across multiple data sets. Click here for more about Curve Fitting and Regression Analysis. Click here for a step-by-step tutorial about Curve Fitting Using SigmaPlot.

Dynamic Curve Fitting

 

Non-linear curve fitting is known to produce incorrect results in some instances.The problem is that you don´t necessarily know that this has happened. Dynamic Curve Fitting is designed to determine if this has happened and if so what the likely best fit is. Click here for additional information about Dynamic Curve Fitting.

 

SigmaPlot Has Complete Advisory Statistical Analysis Features

 

SigmaPlot is now a complete graphing AND an advisory statistics suite. All of the advanced statistical analysis features found in the package known as SigmaStat have now been incorporated into SigmaPlot along with several new statistical features. SigmaPlot guides users through every step of the analysis and performs powerful statistical analysis without the user being a statistical expert.

 

Standard Curves Macro

 

In addition to the EC50 value already computed, the user can also compute other user-entered EC values such as EC40 and EC60 and compute them instantly. Two five-parameter logistic functions have also been added and the Dynamic Curve Fitting feature included to help solve difficult curve fitting problems.

Improved 3D Graph Customization

 

In earlier versions of SigmaPlot, almost all objects in a 2D graph were selectable with just a mouse click. However, almost all objects in a 3D graph were not. SigmaPlot now adds mouse selectability of all 3D graph objects with the ability to customize all 3D objects
