Advanced data analysis for scientists and engineers

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: All the data visualization in my master's thesis was done by Igor pro. All the plots and graphs were done using this software. It was difficult at the beginning but I got faster with it day by day.

Pros:

- The whole array of functions available there are quite useful - The user community is strong and supportive - Data visualization tools are great - Using programming to do certain manipulation on data makes the workflow faster -Fast

Cons:

- Steep learning curve. It takes time to get used to it. - The program still has features that are not as great as it should be compared to the overall maturity of the software.

Flexible, programmable data analysis with Igor Pro

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: I have used Igor (and Igor Pro) for over 20 years. I used it to control data acquisition and analysis for laboratory instrumentation, spectral series analysis and most recently to control and acquire data from semiconductor wafer probing.

Pros:

The extensive programming capability of Igor Pro means that data can be explored by hand or a complete analysis work flow can be programmed. The programming language is "C" like and very fast. Many data analysis routines/techniques are included and publication quality graphics are easy to create. GPIB interface integration allows programming of data acquisition all the way to data analysis. Dynamic interaction with graphs and maps make Igor a powerful tool for data mining.

Cons:

I would like to see easier integration of Igor Pro with SQL databases.

Software for plotting datas

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: overall the experience is great

Pros:

This is one of the best software I used in recent times. This apps helps you in plotting all kinds of data from different instruments which helps the user very much in comparison to other software. This app also helps you save the table as well as plot in the original format and also the format that you want it to be saved. So you can easily go back and check the plot and modify it when required. There are also other advantages such as you can normalize the plots by giving commands in the easiest way which also helps the user to see multiple plots in a single visual.

Cons:

The cons about Igor pro is that though it gives many advantages it has a disadvantage of not using the original CSV file to view through IGOR pro.
