DataScene (DS) allows the user to easily
analyze and process data in tabular forms using its inter-table
manipulation feature and its powerful math parser. The program also allows the user
to easily analyze and process data plotted in graphs and charts with various series functions.

Table Manipulations

Tabular data are stored in DS as one
or more tables that are similar to spreadsheets used in Microsoft®
Excel. The user can use column
and cell formulas to analyze these tabular data. A formula can be built using
the 57 built-in mathematical and string functions. A unique feature of the
program is that related tables (e.g., a series of similar data taken at
different times in an experiment) can be organized into a single sequence
that can be readily plotted and made into chart animations for presenting in
web pages and Microsoft®
PowerPoint.

The program's math parser stores 20 built-in fundamental physical and mathematical constants,
which facilitates scientific
and engineering users to easily input formulas using these constants.

Series Functions

Data
plotted in graphs and charts can
be readily analyzed and processed using various series
functions. A series function associate one series
(e.g. Line, Bar,
Pie, etc) to another
with a defined mathematical relation. The program supports 20 series functions,
some of which contains one more multiple variations:

The
program's series functions are automatically recalculated upon any
change of the data sources. Series functions are robust and
smart. For instance, they support automatic interpolation of the source data if
the program determines it is necessary to do so (e.g., in the case
of FFT where the input data points are not equally spaced).

Ease of Use

The program comes with a user friendly
Wizard, as well as tutorials and context-sensitive help. With the Wizard,
it takes only few minutes for a new user to learn to analyze and
process data with the program.
