Skewed graphs are handled automatically (sometimes scanning isn't perfectly straight) as well as linear, log, date or time charts. Output is displayed in real time and special features for error bar graphs, stock charts, and multiple data sets are included.Log and linear graphs are supported.
Tilted graphs are handled automatically.
Measures angles and distances on any photo.
Data is placed directly into MS Excel, in real time.
Free upgrades forever. You'll never have to buy this software twice.
This is especially useful for accurately digitizing published data in open literature for comparison against your own data or improving accuracy when digitizing old data that isn't in an electronic format (old hardcopies of charts for instance).
