The 3D Data Visualizer Pro is a program that will hepl you to quickly create great 3D line and surface plots.... because it's always better to see the data.
Here are some key features of "3D Data Visualizer Pro":
• Choose your input data file (human readable ascii text data)
• Choose your delimiter type.
• Choose from mesh (surface), line (x,y,z), multi-line, scatter (x,y,z), and area plots
• Choose colors, lighting, and rotation
The Pro version of the 3D Data Visualizer adds several additional capabilities over the standard (FREE) version, including ...
• Texture Maps
Now, when specifying the colors for a surface/mesh plot, or the reference z-plane, you can specify an image file for use as a texture map. The image is applied to the surface of the plot (or to the reference z-plane). There are several images included for use as textures.
• Color Based on Height
Surface/mesh, and scatter plots can now have their z position be the basis of color. The color may be based on the absolute (user specified) Z locations (for min and maximum color), or a relative location. Relative locations include the displayed z axis limits (for max and min color) as well as the data's inherent maximum and minimum values. There are several color schemes to choose from including saturated hues, reverse hues, and black to white and white to black schemes. There is also a custom color scheme where you specify starting and ending colors. • Specular and Shininess Controls
When specifying an opaque color for a surface plot, there is now direct control over specular and shininess parameters.
• Multiple plots on a single chart
Show two or more mesh plots on a single chart
• Area Plots with Transparency Control
Area plots are similar to multi-line plots, but the area underneath is filled in.
You may set the transparency level of all the areas, and choose the individual color of each area.
• Transpose Your Data Sets - swap rows for columns when loading in your data.
• Undo / Redo your chart settings
All user actions which don't continuously change the control values may be undone.
• Save and Restore your Plots and User Settings
• Print, Export Images, and PDF's of your charts
Click on the manual rotation button to select a rotation, and export a TIFF image of your data, or generate a PDF. You can then import this file into Word, PowerPoint or Keynote, to display your 3D graph.
• QuickTime movie export
Click on the Export QuickTime Movie button. Choose a filename and location to store your QuickTime movie. 3D Data Visualizer Pro will export an animated sequence of a full rotation to this file. You can then import this file into Powerpoint or Keynote to make your presentations come alive!
• Background Color Specification
white, black, grey, pink, whatever color your heart desires...
• Set your chart title, and change your axis labels from X, Y, and Z
• Interactive Color Specifications
Click the graph colorwell to display a color picker for your 3D surface. Adjust the colors in the color picker, and instantly see the resulting image (including lighting and rotation effects). Quickly go through hundreds of different combinations to find the effect you want. The 3D Data Visualizer Plot instantly reacts to changes in all the colorwells (background, grid, etc.)
• 3D Light Positioning System
Turn on the Manual Rotation button (to stop the surface from rotating Turn on the Position Light Source button, and your background changes to black. Grids disappear. You see only your surface plot, and a small yellow sphere which shows the relative location of your light source. Adjust the position of the light source, to see your surface illuminated from a different angle.
• Orthographic projections simplify taking measurements.
(ie: closer objects are do not appear larger than objects further away, following graphing techniques used in cartesian coordinate spaces).
All projections from the 3D world to the 2D screen are orthographic, to simplify taking measurements. (ie: closer objects are do not appear larger than objects further away, following graphing techniques used in cartesian coordinate spaces).
