Extract data values from an image of graph or plot

Did you ever have to digitize the data, to extract data values from a published graph? Sometimes it is necessary to compare the data obtained from independent sources  to modern data. You want to manipulate the data, include it in another graph, and to find the best curve to fit the data. You need the raw numbers for calculations. But in most publications only plots but no data values are published. You have a graph from a report and you want to convert plots back to X,Y data.  A real life example would be: x= airline going to Canada, y= airline ticket price, which would tell you what the cheap flights for a business trip to Quebec, would be.

The Wizard of Digitization will help you to digitize the data.

Wizard of Digitization

Select mapping region  This example shows a graph of test data. FindGraph reads the file containing the image and displays it on screen as a background. You select one or several areas and start the Wizard of Digitization. Next step you select mapping region, and set the scale by setting X left, X right, Y top and Y bottom values. Linear or logarithmic axis are supported.

 

Graphs are handled automatically or manually.

Extract data values  Cursor position zoom lets you select several pixel colors to digitize. Sophisticated algorithm is used to exclude net. Of course, you can manually add single data points and remove mistakes.

 

Published data can be accurately captured.

Data digitized by FindGraph  In this picture you can see data digitized by FindGraph.

 

In most scientific publications plots are available only as Adobe Acrobat PDF files.
FindGraph makes it easy to retrieve data points from such a plot.

Retrieve data points from screen

Mark the data points directly on the screen  You have not to capture screenshots before digitizing. Simple use 'Add Points from screen' option. Move and resize the framework window and position it to fit the graph. Now you can mark the data points directly on the screen.
