Visual Data Tools, Inc. Announces the Mac App Store Release of DataGraph, an Innovative and Powerful Graphing Application for Mac OSX

January 7, 2011

Visual Data Tools, Inc., a data visualization software company specializing in scientific Mac OS X software, announces that DataGraph 2.3 will be available in the Mac App Store on its first day.  DataGraph is a productivity application, combining graphs, charts, fits and statistics. Great user interface design and a robust feature set makes it really fast to create graphs for publications, presentations as well as for interactive visual inspection.

DataGraph is an innovative, powerful, and user friendly graphing and charting application for Mac OS X. It minimizes the fuss and frustration associated with creating clean and accurate publication quality graphs and charts and is a great companion for Excel, Numbers or any of the big statistical packages.  Even if you already have the data in a spreadsheet, it is typically faster to copy the data into DataGraph and graph it there than to use the built in functions of your spreadsheet application.

DataGraph’s innovative new approach to graphing and charting allows novice users to create their first chart with ease using the many built-in templates, while advanced users love its sophisticated features such as its function fitting and statistical analysis capabilities. Power users enjoy using it with a scripting environment such as Python and Perl, as well as with Automator. “The more you use DataGraph, the more you will see that every aspect of your graph or chart can be tweaked”, said Dr. David Adalsteinsson, Director of Development at Visual Data Tools. “Then, since the data and what you want to do with it are separate entities in DataGraph, it’s very simple to reuse the design of a nice graph with a new set of data”, said Dr. Adalsteinsson.

“I am very pleased to be able to say that DataGraph has a growing and active user community”, Dr. Adalsteinsson added. DataGraph users consist of students, professors, scientists, engineers, financial analysts, and many others, and the application has gathered great reviews.  John M. Eadie of the Department of Wildlife, Fish & Conservation Biology at the University of California at Davis wrote:”FABULOUS program. Delighted to finally find something that can produce a range of publication quality scientific graphics for Mac.  A long-time coming. I will certainly talk it up and strongly recommend to other colleagues, but I heartily encourage you to let the science world know about this excellent program.  It is a gem. Great support as well. Thank you very much.”. Michael Anderson, a graduate student in chemistry at the University of Oregon at the time wrote:”DataGraph has been my go-to application for all my graphics and 2D data visualization for the past 3 or 4 years. As a graduate student the value for what it does was what initially attracted me to the application. The rapid development cycle and beta program associated with the application are an additional plus, making it possible to request new features, functionality, and enhancements and have them realized very quickly.”

DataGraph is a modern and powerful application which uses the available hardware to the fullest. It has no cap on the number of rows and columns except the hardware itself. For most users, it can therefore handle millions of rows and thousands of columns and its drawing actions are optimized to work at interactive speeds. Moving a slider to examine the effect of different values of a variable therefore changes a graph both smoothly and instantaneously. DataGraph also allows users to export videos of their graphs, showing how things change in time, a useful feature for those who need to incorporate graphs and charts in videos.

DataGraph has proved itself as a very useful tool for many types of users. The great thing about DataGraph is that it grows with the user and thus appeals to both students and scientists alike. The users community currently includes high school students, scientists, medical doctors and rocket scientists.

DataGraph 2.3 runs on Mac OS X 10.6 and is available in the Mac App Store for $89.99. Earlier versions exist for Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5. More information is available at http://www.visualdatatools.com/DataGraph/index.html DataGraph is also sold independently of the App store, and buyers of the Mac App Store version will be able to use the beta versions without any restrictions.

Visual Data Tools, Inc. is a data visualization software company based in Chapel Hill, NC. It was founded in 2002 to market and sell DataTank, a 2005 Apple Design Award-winning data visualization application for scientists.
