OriginLab releases new data analysis and graphing software

Nov. 10, 2016

Northampton, MA. OriginLab, a publisher of data-analysis and graphing software, today announced the release of Origin and OriginPro 2017. These latest versions of OriginLab’s software applications add over 100 new features, apps, and feature improvements, further enhancing Origin’s ease-of-use as well as graphing, analysis, and programming capabilities.

Origin 2017 includes several ease-of-use enhancements such as a revamped plot menu with large icons to help users quickly find the graph type they need; simpler column/cell notation for defining column formulas; and the Origin Central Startup Dialog, which provides numerous graph and analysis samples, easy access to existing templates and projects, resources to explore and install apps, and videos and tutorials for learning.

Origin 2017 also introduces Trellis plots for creating multi-panel graphs from grouped data; 3D stacked bars and 100% stacked bars with a variety of bar shapes; more fill patterns including a large set of standard geology patterns and user-defined patterns; improvements to box plots; improvements to axis dialog including support for multiple reference lines; and enhanced multi-tabbed dialog for customizing graph annotations.

OriginLab continues to provide apps for extending graphing and analysis features. 14 new apps are being released at the same time as this new version. Notable among them: converting SMILES strings to molecular images; principal component analysis for spectroscopy; enzyme kinetics; logistic regression; general linear regression; piecewise fit; simple time series analysis; and an updated LaTeX app to insert equations in worksheet header rows and graph axes titles, legends, and text labels.

“The Origin Central dialog in this new version provides an ideal starting point within the application for both new and experienced users. We have provided numerous graphing and analysis samples within this dialog so users can open the samples and explore for themselves with their data,” said Dr. C.P. Yang, founder and CEO, OriginLab. “New Apps released with this version, such as for converting SMILES strings to images and the updated LaTeX app for adding equations to graphs, are based on requests from multiple Origin users. Our goal with apps is to continue providing customer-driven enhancements to Origin with a quick turnaround.”

Additional updates and features in Origin 2017 include two-way ANOVA support for means plot to help visually compare means; built-in formulas or metadata for parameter initialization; sequential initialization of parameter values in batch peak analysis; ability to communicate with Mathematica V8 or later; support for the full NAG Mark 25 library; and support for dialogs created with HTML and JavaScript

Origin offers an intuitive, point-and-click interface for new users, combined with a range of powerful functions for advanced purposes. OriginPro includes all of the features of Origin plus extended analysis tools. Origin and OriginPro are used by more than 500,000 registered customers worldwide spanning Fortune Global 500 companies, research institutions, and colleges and universities across various disciplines including physics, chemistry, biology, pharmacology, engineering, and manufacturing.
