Knovel Launches Updated Interactive Graph Tools

Powerful Graphs Facilitate Use of Data and Increase Efficiency for Engineers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 14, 2013) - Knovel, a leader in providing a Web-based application that integrates technical information with analytical and search tools, today announced an impactful update to its interactive graph tools. The company has substantially improved the user interface and functionality of its Equation Plotter, Graph Digitizer, Graph Plotter, Phase Diagram Viewer and Parameterized Graph tools.

"Knovel aims to help engineers mine the usefulness of data, and these updated graphs are powerful tools engineers can use to find better answers more quickly," said Sasha Gurke, senior vice president and co-founder of Knovel.

Knovel offers more than 100,000 interactive objects, and the interactive graphs allow users to derive x, y coordinates from curves that can be expressed as an equation, digitize normally static graphs or plot and compare several curves from individual data points in a table. With the latest update, engineers are able to easily print or export graphs to Excel. Additional new features include:

  • Significant performance and usability enhancements inspired by suggestions from Knovel users
  • Completely reprogrammed scalable resolution so all the graphs can be resized within an enhanced user interface
  • New and improved functionality controls and a quick how-to-use guide
  • Ability to select a point to determine an x or y coordinate
  • Graphs no longer require Adobe Flash Player

The new graphs are now available. Customers interested in a demonstration are encouraged to attend a webinar on February 4th. Register online at http://pages.knovel.com/NewGraphsTraining02042013.html. For additional questions, contact Knovel customer support at support@knovel.com.
