GOLDEN, COLORADO, 8 January 2013 – Golden Software, Inc., the leading provider of affordable scientific graphics software, announces the release of Grapher 10, an accurate and efficient 2D and 3D graphing program that meets every graphing need, from simple to complex.
Introduced in 1986, Grapher is a leading competitor in graphing software. Designed primarily for scientists, engineers, and business professionals, Grapher converts data into more than sixty fully customizable graph types. Grapher continues to be known for its easy-to-use interface and for creating professional publication-quality graphs quickly and easily.
The most popular new features in Grapher 10 are the three new graph types: 3D vector plots, contour function plots, and Q-Q plots. Vector plots connect two points in 3D space with an arrow. The contour function plot creates a 3D function plot based on two input variables (Y as a function of X and Z). The highly requested Q-Q plot compares a data set to another data set or to a normal distribution, allowing statistical interpretation.
The class scatter plots were greatly improved by implementing several top user-requested features. Symbol sizes for all classes can be changed at once to a single size or to an incremental size. A color map can be applied, changing the line and fill of symbols using a gradation of colors.
Two additional great features are new fit types for histograms (adding lognormal, exponential, power, and inverse Gaussian) and the ability to connect and export error bars. These features give users more control over their data display.
Comments from Grapher customers and beta-testers after reviewing Grapher 10:
- “Grapher is a fabulous tool for creating presentation-quality graphs. It is almost infinitely flexible and is not constrained by some of the limitations that hamper my use of other graphing programs.” – Dave Suder, Principal Scientist, Precise Environmental Consultants
- “People always ask our group how we did our graphs, and we show them Grapher. They see it working and go away to buy their own copy.” – Sally Finora, Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering
- “Grapher is amazing. So easy to use and produces amazing figures for my thesis work.” – Peter Kramer
Grapher 10 operates in a Microsoft® Windows environment with Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8. Grapher 10 is now available for a retail price of $489, with quantity discounts available. Upgrades from any previous version of Grapher are available for only $169. Grapher 10 includes free updates and free technical support.
