OmniGraphSketcher 1.0 fleshes out graphs

updated 04:40 pm EDT, Wed March 25, 2009

OmniGraphSketcher 1.0

Omni Group says it has released OmniGraphSketcher 1.0, having originally acquired the app as Graph Sketcher from new employee Robin Stewart. Users simply draw the graphs they want to produce, after which OGS interprets the illustration as proper data. Lines are used to indicate items such as goals and cutoffs, and appearance can be enhanced with labels, shading and various shapes.

Graphs can also be completed by importing or pasting in data from apps such as Excel, and once rendered, adjusted by clicking and dragging elements that snap to a grid. Exported files can further be saved as static images for use in areas such as notepad applications. The software runs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and is set at $30.

    Students' delight

    Ideal for science students the world over! Draw the graph you need to pass, read off the results that give you that graph, apply a retrospective "bench factor" (also a favourite tool of chem students everywhere) to the actual results you measured, and hey presto! Top marks for your next assignment.

    Come to think of it, I think Al Gore used this app to 'prove' anthropogenic global warming.

    product seems useless

    in a lifetime of R and D, the only time i knew someone actually using a fudge factor in a real project, he got it by taking a series of measurements on a lens, and running it through a 500-line FORTRAN program he wrote.

    I have to admin those are lovely graphs, though. Should I throw away my copy of Adobe Illustrator?

    Supports Real Data too.

    Current screencast up on the site doesn't make it clear, but you can also paste in data from an external source. OmniGraphSketcher graphs the data, which you can then touch up or style.
