Graphing

With over 100 built-in graph types, Origin makes it easy to create and customize publication-quality graphs. You can simply start with a built-in graph template and then customize every element of your graph to suit your needs. Easily add additional axes, as well as multiple panels/layers to your graph page. Save your settings as a custom template for repeat use. In addition, you can do batch plotting with other dataset.
