    Veusz scientific plotting & graphing package

    "Velvet Ember Under Sky Zenith 1.2.1
    Veusz is a scientific plotting and graphing package written in Python.
    It uses PyQt (Wiki) and Numpy. Veusz is designed to produce publication-ready Postscript/PDF output. Veusz runs under Unix/Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
    Veusz provides a GUI, command line and scripting interface (based on Python) to its plotting facilities. The plots are built using an object-based system to provide a consistent interface.
    Features include:
    * X-Y plots (with errorbars)
    * Images (with colour mappings)
    * Contour plots (filled/unfilled)
    * Stepped plots (for histograms)
    * Line plots
    * Function plots
    * Stacked plots and arrays of plots
    * Plot keys
    * Plot labels
    * Shapes and arrows on plots
    * LaTeX-like formatting for text
    * EPS/PNG/PDF/SVG output
    * Simple, CSV and FITS data importing
    * Scripting interface
    * Dataset manipulation
    * Embed Veusz within other programs

    Veusz is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Software and is licenced under the GPL"

    I'm just starting to have a play, but results look very professional so far.

    Re: Veusz scientific plotting & graphing package

    Thanks Alan.

    If I ever need to use graphs again I will turn to R before trying out anything else. Here's a graphical gallery showing off R's graphical cababilities.
    On the down side, R is pretty complex (overwhelming I dare say) to start from scratch, so if Veusz is sensibly simpler it might be worth keeping.
