Latest version includes many new graph types, batch plotting,
enhanced options for graph customization, and new data analysis tools
Origin 9.1 provides more than 200 new features and improvements to version 9.0, which was released last year. Among the key enhancements in version 9.1 are new graph types, including Grouped Box Chart and Column/Bar Plot, Piper Diagram, 3D Ternary Surface Plot, 3D Waterfall Plot, 100% Stacked Column/Bar Plot, and Marginal Histogram/Box Chart. Several time-saving features are also included, such as Batch Plotting to create duplicate graphs from other worksheets and columns, Batch Analysis on multiple data plots using interactive gadgets, copying and pasting analysis operations to new data, and a custom worksheet header row for quickly assigning and editing column formulas.
Another key feature in Origin 9.1 is a redesigned graph axis dialog. The new tree-based dialog design provides a number of additional advanced options for graph customization, including multiple axis breaks with customizable break gaps and break indicators, user-defined axes scales, and tick label tables, which are particularly useful for grouped data plots. The latest version also introduces auto-positioning of labels in graphs, with the ability to add leader lines and to place labels arbitrarily such as attaching to data plot, to axes, or at fixed positions within the graph layer. New data analysis features include Akima Spline interpolation, Lowess and Loess smoothing, and several improvements to existing analysis tools.
OriginPro contains all of the Origin 9.1 features, as well as new tools for Partial Least Square Regression, additional Power & Sample Size tests, an Orthogonal Distance Regression algorithm for Nonlinear Curve Fitting, a tool to fit and rank multiple fitting models, and a gadget to perform 2D integration over a region of interest.
