Graph IDE is the powerful data visualization application for Mac, iPad, iPhone and Windows. It is rich in graphic creation, editing and programming to facilitate the visualization of information. Select a tab below to see Graph IDE on the different platforms. To install Graph IDE on your device see: Install.
NOTE: This manual is currently about 275 pages long; obviously graphing is more complex than one might suspect on the outset. Even so, many features have been factored out such as Strip Chart (currently 75 pages long), Graphing wizards and server programmability. In addition, many more features are simply not documented because they are specific to unique situations. In addition, many features are glossed over as obvious even though they are only found in Graph IDE and have not been incorporate elsewhere, i.e.: they have been invented within Graph IDE and have not been [able to be] duplicated by other applications. The upshot is this: While using Graph IDE there is plenty of opportunity, however there is also plenty of discovery that needs to take place and it may take considerable time to digest its scope. That be said, many features are obvious and immediately usable and it is the intent of the Graph IDE design and this manual to provide ready access to many features.
Graph IDE includes a large collection of Basic, Graph, 2D Data Graphic and 3D Data Graphic drawing objects that can be created via premade and custom Palettes, Chart Tasks, Direct Tool Creation Modes, several specialized interfaces in the Laboratory and many other ways. Graphs, data and graphics can be programmed, see the Programming section. To start understanding Graph IDE see Preamble.
Graph IDE, and the underlying codebase, is the result of three decades of development and work in the area of data visualization. Even so, it is only the "tip of the iceberg". To broaden its applicability it also implements rapid development of other classes of data visualization applications. See Custom Application for additional information.
