MathSoft introduces Axum 5.0, offers revolutionary graphing and data analysis features; Axum 5.0 helps reveal hidden patterns in data.
New enhancements and features include panel plots for revealing hidden patterns in data, the ability to customize Axum's toolbars and menus, and a unique link that lets users create PowerPoint presentations automatically.
Axum 5.0 is the first point-and-click graphing package to offer panel plots, modeled after TRELLIS graphics pioneered by Bill Cleveland at Bell Labs and Rick Becker at AT&T Labs. Panel plots allow users to condition data on multiple variables and to examine different relationships in the data.
"Axum's exclusive technology provides users with a competitive edge and facilitates the deeper exploration of scientific research," said Charles Digate, chairman, CEO and president of MathSoft. "With the addition of powerful new features in this release, Axum becomes a significant contender for leadership in the technical charting market."
Axum offers complete point-and-click graphing, allowing users to create graphs instantly by selecting data from a built-in data sheet and clicking on one of over 80 2-D and 3-D plot buttons. This interactive, graphical approach makes it easier for users to create and edit graphs and to switch between different graph types.
Axum 5.0 has a unique, seamless link with Microsoft's PowerPoint, allowing users to create presentations easily and automatically from their Axum graphs. With the click of a button, Axum's PowerPoint wizard appears, the user specifies which Axum graphs are to be included and the PowerPoint presentation is created. In addition, Axum links seamlessly with Mathcad, the industry leading technical calculation software from MathSoft.
With new point-and-click customization features, Axum 5.0 offers complete control over the user interface including toolbars and menus. For example, a user can create a customized Axum toolbar by performing any function in Axum, then drag the automatically-generated script for that function onto a toolbar. A new toolbar button is created and the function is executed when the user clicks on it. This feature can be used to easily deploy graphing and data analysis solutions within an organization.
