The new SigmaPlot 13: New Graph and Analysis Features

The easiest way to analyze and present your data

Systat Software has released SigmaPlot 13, the latest version of their most advanced scientific data analysis and graphing software package.

SigmaPlot 13 provides researchers with an enriched user interface, increased ease of use and new features to quickly analyze data and create exact, publication-quality graphs that best present research results for presentation, publication or the web.

This latest version contains many workflow efficiency improvements, new enhancements to SigmaPlot's curve fitting features and a wider range of graphing options including Forest  Plot, Kernel Density Plot, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and ANCOVA.

SigmaPlot 13 New Features

New Graph Features

  • Forest Plot
  • Kernel Density Plot
  • Dot Density Graph with mean and standard error bars
  • 10 New Color Schemes
  • Legend Improvements
    • Horizontal, Vertical and Rectangular Legend Shapes
    • Variable number of legend item columns
    • Reorder and reverse legend items
    • „Direct Labeling“: legend items directly in the graph

New Analysis Features

  • Principal Component Analysis (PCA)
  • Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA)
  • Added P values to multiple comparisons for non-parametric ANOVAs
  • Akaike Information Criterion
  • Added probability functions and weighting functions
  • Rerun button

New User Interface Features

  • Rearrange Notebook items in a section by dragging
  • Line widths from a worksheet column
  • New SigmaPlot tutorial PDF file

New Import/Export Features

  • Added the SVG and SWF file formats for scalable vector graphics export
  • Added Vector PDF export to improve on the existing raster PDF
  • File import and export support is added for Versions 13 and 14 of Minitab, Version 9 of SAS, Version 19 of SPSS and Version 13 of Symphony

As before SigmaPlot has

  • A huge data worksheet
  • A wide range of flexibly customizable 2D and 3D graphs
  • Numerous technical graph options
  • A wide range of data analysis and statistics features
  • Extended statistical analysis with the step-by-step Advisor
  • User-Defined Transforms
  • Automation features using SigmaPlot’s Visual Basic (VBA) compatible macro language
  • Module extension (Electrophysiology).

Generate Graphs Quickly and easily
With the Tabbed Window View all open windows appear with tabs. This effective window management tool provides you with an instantaneous display of each window. The Object-specific mini toolbars are displayed adjacent to selected graph, worksheet and report objects thereby allowing rapid editing of object properties. The Quick Access Toolbar allows you to add commonly used controls to SigmaPlot’s Quick Access Toolbar such as creating a new notebook, saving changes in a notebook or cleaning up the workspace by closing all windows.

These Graphing capabilities Enhance your Ability to Create Publication Quality Graphs
Use the Gradient Fill and Transparency features to enhance the presentation of your data. Color gradients can be used for impact, and the transparency allows comparing underlying plots, or the display of other graph objects, e.g. grid lines.

The dot density macro produces a graph very much like what an artist would prepare where adjacent data values either stack or nestle (added in version 13: mean plus standard error bar computation, symbol plus error bars). The Radar Plot allows a multi-variable comparison with an arbitrary number of variables. The Forest Plot is one form of “meta-analysis” which is used to combine multiple analyses addressing the same question.

Effectively Manage and Analyze Your Data
The Enzyme Kinetics module is integrated into SigmaPlot 13 providing you with additional enzyme kinetics analysis features and additional graph types such as Michaelis-Menten, Lineweaver-Burk, Eadie-Hofstee, Scatchard, Hanes-Woolf, Hill and Dixon.

A total of 24 probability functions have been added to the curve fit library, and there are now seven different weighting functions built into each nonlinear regression equation (3D are slightly different).

Enhanced Statistical Features
Principal component analysis (PCA) is a technique for reducing the complexity of highdimensional data by approximating the data with fewer dimensions. ANCOVA (Analysis of Covariance) is an extension of ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) obtained by specifying one or more covariates as additional variables in the model. The Akaike Information Criterion is a goodness of fit criterion that also accounts for the number of parameters in the equation.
