Origin Graphing Software
Origin is a visualisation program that produces graphs and plots intended for direct incorporation in research publications. This software is produced by OriginLab. Sample plots are shown on OriginLab's gallery.
There are a small number of licenses available on campus for Origin, the main product, and OriginPro, an advanced version with more features. The program to install Origin, and documentation on how to the install, are available on the network share at:
Note that Origin is only available for Windows computers. Macintosh users can use a virtual Windows environment to run the software.
As well as plotting data, Origin will do some data analysis - curve fitting, ANOVA, Fourier transforms, and peak analysis are examples.
There is one error that has been identified. If you are getting the error "Your FlexIm license file does not allow running this version of Origin" displayed when trying to run Origin, then your system time (or date) is wrong on your computer. Reset the date/time as required.
