OriginLab announced the release of Origin and OriginPro version 9.1.
According to the company, Origin 9.1 includes more than 200 new features and improvements. New graph types include Grouped Box Chart and Column/Bar Plot, Piper Diagram, 3D Ternary Surface Plot, 3D Waterfall Plot, 100% Stacked Column/Bar Plot, and Marginal Histogram/Box Chart. Several time-saving features are also included, such as Batch Plotting to create duplicate graphs from other worksheets and columns, Batch Analysis on multiple data plots using interactive gadgets, copying and pasting analysis operations to new data, and a custom worksheet header row for quickly assigning and editing column formulas.
The new tree-based graph axis dialog design provides a number of additional advanced options for graph customization, including multiple axis breaks with customizable break gaps and break indicators, user-defined axes scales, and tick label tables. The latest version also introduces auto-positioning of labels in graphs, with the ability to add leader lines and to place labels arbitrarily such as attaching to data plot, to axes, or at fixed positions within the graph layer. New data analysis features include Akima Spline interpolation, Lowess and Loess smoothing, and several improvements to existing analysis tools.
OriginPro contains all of the Origin 9.1 features, as well as new tools for Partial Least Square Regression, additional Power and Sample Size tests, an Orthogonal Distance Regression algorithm for nonlinear curve fitting, a tool to fit and rank multiple fitting models, and a gadget to perform 2D integration over a region of interest.
