The software provides a gallery of 2-D and 3-D graph
types and only requires a minimum of information for graph creation.
Users can now view rotatable OpenGL 3-D graphs
, which can be distributed and used without installing the analysis and graphing software.
Users now can rotate, pan, and zoom within 3-D graphs
to examine details more efficiently than in previous versions.
Using relatively realistic 3-D graphs
with several elements, Siegrist (1996) failed to support Tufte's hypothesis that charts with a high data-ink ratio should be superior to those with a low data-ink ratio.
The graphing capabilities are fairly full-featured, including support for basic 3-D graphs
, but miss features found in some other graphing software packages (e.
Capability: SigmaPlot 2000 provides more than 80 different 2-D and 3-D graphs
that give users the ability to represent and analyze, as well as to compare and contrast research data.
