Re: scientific graphic software

Hi Pawel,

Nothing beats Matlab, although the slope of the learning curve tends to be rather shallow.
We also had fair results with Systat.

This is not going to be an exactly auditory question, but I hope that the
auditory scientific community will be able to help me.  I am lookng for
suggestions on a decent scientific graphic package. I have an experience
with SigmaPlot, and I like it pretty much, but I would like to know other

Specifically I would love to have two features which are not available in

One is a possibility to create map or surface plots from non-rectangular
or incomplete data tables. SigmaPlot kind of allows for that, but it uses
a not very reliable (IMHO) interpolation for the missing points to force
the rectangular shape.

The second thing is a possibility to run the program on Mac in addition to
Windows. This is however not so much important.

The only program which appeared to fulfill my needs was DeltaGraph. I
tried it, and non-rectangular map graphs were available, there is also a
Mac version, apparently. The problem is that the demo crashed several
times during my 30-minute test drive. I would prefer something more

One more thing - I really prefer the program to be easily
graphical-interface driven, and fully WYSIWYG. No complicated scripts,

I would appreciate your suggestions,
