Aabel 3 released
Gigawiz has released Aabel 3, an update to its statistics and exploratory data analysis, graphing and mapping software. The new version adds K-means clustering, Shapiro-Wilk tests for normality, Hartley's Fmax test, Bartlett's chi-Square test, plus ANOVA (Extended Analysis of Variance) and new multiple comparisons tests. Over 30 other statistical tests are incorporated as well, with new statistical and multivariate analysis methods, new graphing types and capabilities, and new data tools. It also features an overhauled interface for graph customization, and adds 3D plotting options.
The software allows users to map and project statistical data, with interactive visualization and 240 styles of representation. Other components include data management tools, a formula editor and multidimensional data filtering. Aabel can import and export data and create publication-quality graphics in formats such as JPG, TIF, PNG and PDF.
It is now available for Mac OS X 10.4.4 or higher, and costs $575. Educational and multi-seat discounts are being offered.
