DADiSP Makes Complex Data Analysis Faster and Easier
(pronounced day-disp) is an interactive graphics worksheet -- a visually
oriented software package for the display, management, analysis and presentation
of scientific and technical data. If you collect, manipulate, edit, reduce,
transform, display or analyse data, DADiSP can handle and simplify your
data needs. In short, if you work with technical data, DADiSP is for you.
With DADiSP you can acquire, input and even generate sample data, displaying
the results in multiple windows for immediate graphic comparison. You
can reduce and transform data, using any of hundreds of menu-driven analysis
functions, instantly graphing the results of each stage of your work.
DADiSP doesn't require mastering any programming skills or arcane command
sets. DADiSP was designed to let you perform data analysis the way you
think about data analysis.
DADiSP's Unique Worksheet Approach Puts an
End to Programming
A DADiSP worksheet is comprised of as many analysis windows as you
need. Each window can contain either raw data, or data transformed
by one of DADiSP's many analysis functions, shown as a graph or a table.
The data and graphs in each DADiSP window can be related through formulas
to those in other windows, permitting you to define your own analysis
chain without programming. When new data is loaded into the raw data
windows, dependent windows automatically recalculate and update.
DADiSP Brings Your Data
to Life... Graphically
DADiSP enables you to look at your data from different points of view.
View data as a line graph, a scatter plot, a stick chart, a bar chart,
a waterfall plot, a 3-D plot, 4-D colonization or as a basic table
of numbers. With DADiSP, you can dynamically scroll, expand or compress
your data in any direction. Zoom in on a region of interest, add grids,
include scales and engineering units. View your data in whatever colors
you wish, overlay one graph with another, and another, and another
-- as many overlays as you wish, in as many graph styles as you wish
-- the possibilities are endless. Comparing different views of your
data couldn't be easier.
Powerful Enough to Meet All Your Needs
From data input and acquisition, to analysis and display, to reduction
and manipulation, to transformation and what-if simulations, to publication-quality
output for journals, reports and presentations. DADiSP does it all!
With over 1000 powerful functions including mathematics, statistics,
Fourier analysis, matrix manipulation, 2-D, 3-D, 4-D and technical graphics,
DADiSP has everything you need to do your job simpler, faster and better
from start to finish and with tens of thousands of commercial and academic
users worldwide, you're in good company with DADiSP.
for Presentation Reports
DADiSP gives you publication quality graphics and text output on a wide
variety of printers and plotters. Text and graphic annotation can be added
to any plot to professionalise its presentation and to improve its interpretation.
Plot directly to your printer or transfer a DADiSP window or complete
worksheet into your favorite desktop publishing package with DADiSP's
state-of-the-art image rendering capabilities.
Data From Any Source
DADiSP automatically captures data generated by most laboratory instruments
and test and measurement equipment, making your data available for
immediate graphic display and analysis.
Let DADiSP help you take control of automated test and measurement equipment,
or even production equipment. DADiSP is ideal for quality management
and factory monitoring applications.
SPL (Series Programming Language)
A C/C++ like programming language, SPL, is designed to address the special
needs, routines, and customization of the engineer, programmer, or OEM.
SPL provides all the standard programming facilities including user-defined
functions, looping and iteration, conditional statements, array references
and variables. SPL also supports the unique and powerful feature called "Hot
Variables". Change the value of a Hot Variable, and all variables
that depend on it automatically update.
The Windows version supports ActiveX as a client or server, allowing
bidirectional exchange of ASCII or binary data. DADiSP Worksheets can
be embedded into any ActiveX aware application such as Excel or Word.
DADiSP Worksheets can be emailed to colleagues and displayed on Web
sites using standard Web browsers.
Customisable and Extendible
DADiSP allows you to create your own analysis functions with SPL and
DADiSP Macros, build your own analysis programs with DADiSP Worksheets,
run your favorite external programs from the DADiSP environment, and
set up your own standard procedures through DADiSP scripts. Create
your own pop-up menus with the DADiSP Pop-up Menu Toolkit. With DADiSP
you can set up your application once so that others can handle routine
tasks for you. Engineers and OEM's can integrate DADiSP with their
own or other hardware and software using ActiveX and SPL.
You Choose the Computer
The latest release of DADiSP (version 6) supports Windows 9x/2000/NT/XP
operating systems. Classic versions of DADiSP are available under X-Windows
Motif on workstations from Sun, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Digital Equipment,
NeXT, SGI Concurrent and others.
