We needed to process charts for a financial company with a very specific look, and create high quality print-ready and web-ready files. DataGraph was absolutely the best app out there to manage the look and feel for the graphics, while providing detailed data expression for the financial people. We're really impressed

FABULOUS program. Delighted to finally find something that can produce a range of publication quality scientific graphics for Mac. A long-time coming. I will certainly talk it up and strongly recommend to other colleagues, but I heartily encourage you to let the science world know about this excellent program. It is a gem.Great support as well. Thank you very much.

I would like to thank you for developing a wonderful application. I installed the trial yesterday, after a long search for a graphing application suitable for my requirements (I'm a marine biologist, needing to visualize scientific data for publication) and I registered it just after several hours, having been convinced that it was just right. It is made the way a fine piece of software should be made; rational, user-friendly and polished, yet powerful and professional to the core. Acquaintance with the way the application works came pretty easily, and after that it was pure pleasure to discover that everything is actually (and nicely) adjustable and i can decide how the data are being treated and how the final graph is put together, in every fine detail. The quality of the produced graphs is outstanding. I also enjoyed having plenty of choices regarding export as a graphic file. I am sure I will have further joyful discoveries as I'll be using it more and more!PS. Having used and loved Cricket Graph as a student (it was installed in the lab's Macintosh Classic and it was the first graphing application I ever used) I considered the possibility to import files from it in DataGraph a nice touch! :)

I have been using DataGraph for nearly three years to depict findings from research in Parkinson’s disease and in eye movement control. Strongly influenced by Edward Tufte’s principles of visualisation, I want to focus on the data and eliminate extraneous "chart junk". DataGraph gives the level of control needed to do that, allowing beautiful and minimalist stories to be told. Different elements can be layered upon each other, allowing novel visualisations to be created to suit the question being asked, without one being shoe-horned into restrictive plot types. More important than the program's features, however, is that it is maintained by a developer who is clearly passionate about producing the best possible software. David rapidly incorporates suggestions from users so that DataGraph is continually being shaped to meet our needs. Whether working within the constraints of traditional black and white academic publishing, or producing dynamic time lapse visualisations for on-screen presentation, DataGraph has become the essential tool in my scientific communication.

DataGraph has been my go-to application for all my graphics and 2D data visualization for the past 3 or 4 years. As a graduate student the value for what it does was what initially attracted me to the application. The rapid development cycle and beta program associated with the application are an additional plus, making it possible to request new features, functionality, and enhancements and have them realized very quickly. The feature set in DG makes it easy to create publication quality graphics from the myriad data formats I encounter in my research. Because of the thorough and well designed data handling I rarely need to work in a formal spreadsheet or application specific data analysis package.Though not its primary purpose, the versatility of the package makes it a great data analysis tool as well. I have been able to create templates to reduce complex datasets to useful values and then, because of the visual nature of the analysis, present the data treatment in a manner that is is easily understood by others.

With DataGraph we have flexibility and power to produce high quality 2-d graphics. It is not only the crisp graphics that DG offers that is compelling ... it is the power of being able to compute and filter within the plotting environment - to readily be able to try a what-if scenario with the simple change of a value. We make much more progress in a shorter period of time and, for example, aren't limited to the typical spreadsheet limits or burdened to create a database to query from. The capabilities of animating the results, efforts which once took hours, are done with a click of a button. The possibilities are nearly endless to explore data, yet, with templates, previous solutions and graphics can be employed merely by dropping new data into prepared forms.Thankfully, this is not a static on-the-shelf program. It is dynamic and is improved on nearly a daily basis by a developer who is passionate about his product producing the very best results for his customer base.
