|xyscan is a tool for scientist in the need to extract data points, i.e. numeric values, from a plot. It allows to scan the plots and extract data points including the size of the error bars (both in x and y). It can handle plots with linear and logarithmic scales. In fact xyscan can be used for extracting numeric values from any kind of 2D technical drawings. Click here for a screen shot of xyscan in action.|
Minor update 3.31 (May 15, 2011) for
Linux users. Fixed
a problem that occured only when launching xyscan from
the command line with a filename as argument.
xyscan is supported currently on Windows XP/Vista/7, MAC OS X , and Red Hat Linux/Fedora/Scientific Linux (or similar) meaning I am trying hard make sure that the application can be build w/o hiccups and does run flawless on these three platforms. It will most certainly run on different Linux flavors and Windows versions but I have no time to support any other platform than the ones listed above. I am very grateful that others stepped in and there is now a distributions available for Gentoo. See also the pages at the Fink web site. Many thanks to all that helped maintaining and distributing it.Legal Notes

Special thanks to Seth Vidal from Duke University who helped me building the first rpm for Linux (xyscan version 2) and who introduced me to the world of licensing and GPL. Many thanks to Valeri Fine who came up with the double-click improvement in 3.1.0. I am very grateful to Benjamin Bannier who made the Gentoo port possible. Last but not least I want to thank Jd Bourlier big time. Without him there would be no French version.
