Visual Numerics has introduced PV-Wave Version 9.0, the latest version of its visual data analysis software, with new analysis features, expanded usability and performance, and broader platform support.

The software allows engineers and scientists to build visual analysis applications. It can be used for the data mining of large and complex data sets to better understand trends, patterns and anomalies in data.

Embedded analytics from the IMSL C Library provide both backward analysis and forward predictions on collected data, while the robust PV-Wave graphics and visualisation engine efficiently illustrates data sets using n-dimensional charts, heat maps, and contour maps.
