February 1999 Magazine Reviews:
German Origin Receives Highest Rating for Data Analysis
The well known computer magazine throughout the German speaking
countries, ct, has recently published an article comparing
software for data analysis and presentation in their January '99
issue. German Origin 5.0 received the highest rating in 5 categories
over the other programs: Axum 5, Gauss 3.2&3.5, HiQ 4.0, Igor Pro
3.13, Mathviews 2.45C, O-Matrix 4.01, and PV-Wave 6.
German Origin was rated the top program for operation, functions/features,
user-interface, graphics, and documentation. You can review the
complete article online - in German - as
a pdf document.

Powerful Data Analysis Routine Helps Locate Buried Bombs
Heavy bombing equipment during World War II in Europe, particularly
Germany, left thousands of unexploded bombs buried underground and
underwater. The bombs can be detected with magnetic sensors, but
sorting through the huge amounts of data generated in area searches
has proven to be by far the most difficult part of the task. Recently,
a data analysis program has been developed that is capable of correlating
global positioning system data to magnetic sensor readings to identify
likely bomb site candidates in a remarkably short period of time.
A key to the success of this application is the use of packaged
data-analysis software, Origin, which is capable of interfacing
to external C and C++ pattern curve fitting routines that operate
at the required high rate of speed. See the complete article in
the Winter edition of REMEDIATION. (pg 69-73).
