Engineers and math professionals will appreciate DPlot more than the layperson, but it has features that are useful for all users. Need to create a graph for your PowerPoint presentation or annual report? DPlot can handle this for you. It will create two- and three-dimensional graphs from data inputted into the program.
DPlot is not a program that is understandable without a visit to the Help file. Users who are familiar with engineering and calculation programs may not have the same difficulty using the program as we did, but we needed to read the instructions. The Help file is extensive and there is a section called "Getting Started" that is a good place to begin. We created some test graphs and found that there are many options. You can change the way your graphs look and the way data is displayed. You can add notes at any point on your graph. Graphs can be saved in most graphic file formats so that you can insert them into other documents. You can save your graph as a CSV file, and use it in spreadsheet programs. Macros are an option, so you can also interpolate data with DPlot.
The program offers an ample 30-day trial period. Overall, DPlot might be a bit too challenging for those who are not in analytical fields. Other graphing programs are available that do not require users to have extensive math skills. However, DPlot has a lot to offer for mathematicians and engineers, and we encourage those professionals to give it a shot.
