Origin 8.5

Share this on social media:

OriginLab has released Origin 8.5, a new version of its Windows-based analysis and graphing software. The release includes several new features that allow for more sophisticated representations of data, and also provides users with a greater ability to analyse their data directly in graphs.

The new features include transparency control to allow graph elements to overlap while maintaining clarity, and gradient colour fill to increase contrast and visual impact. Zooming and panning can now be done simultaneously on graphs and images, allowing for more efficient inspection of data at multiple scales in both two and three dimensions.

Additional graphing improvements include an enhanced waterfall plot, a new vector plot template, and the ability to add error bars to 3D plots. Moreover, the new virtual matrix feature enables surface and contour graphs to be created directly from worksheet data, including those with non-uniform axis scales. Key analysis features have also been added, including a new Fitting Function Builder, a redesigned data information window, and three new gadgets: region statistics, interpolation and differentiation.
