Citrin 統計繪圖軟體
Features of Citrin Worksheets
Worksheets are Aabel's data storage mechanism, and provide numerous data management functions and utilities. They also act as dynamic data sources for data analysis and visualization.
Supported Data Import Formats
 Excel format: 95, 972004 workbook (.xls)
 Delimited text data (tab, comma, semicolon, space, etc.)
 Fortran formatted data
 Delimited numeric matrix data
 Binary numeric matrix formats (8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit, and 64 bit data)
Supported Variable Types
 Numbers (any legal numerical representation with no explicit sample space)
 Date and Time (30 builtin date & time formats, and tools for customdefining a format)
 Text (with Unicode support)
Quality Control of Numeric Data
Citrin's quality control tools allow:
 Viewing the univariate statistics of a variable, including circular statistics
 Checking the number of missing values of a variable (discontinuous data, etc.)
 Detecting outofrange values (impossible values, punching errors, etc.) and highlighting them in the corresponding worksheet rows
 Dealing with outofrange values using different options
Worksheet Information and Notebook
 It displays a list of all variables present in the worksheet
 If a worksheet has been generated from the results of data filtering, the userdefined filter criteria will be stored in the worksheet notebook
 If the worksheet has been generated from crosstabulating and pivoting, the information regarding the original worksheet file, primary and secondary split variables, etc., will be stored in the worksheet notebook
 It provides a text area for storing notes, e.g., data source references, etc.
The worksheet notebook has four functions:
The Worksheet Formula Editor
 The formula editor provides 46 predefined mathematical and statistical functions, and includes standard as well as boolean/conditional operators.
 In Aabel, variables are identified by names, and not by the position of worksheet columns. However, to facilitate sequential calculations, the formula editor provides functions that operate on variables by indices instead of names.
Citrin Graphic Viewer
The graphic viewer is Citrin's interface for data visualization and charting.
 The graphic viewer can work simultaneously with multiple worksheets, and has a realtime, two way interaction with data.
 The graphic viewer toolbar provides tools for interacting with data, zooming, moving and resizing graphics, creating tables and singleline text, and more.
 Saved graphic viewer files do not store static blocks of data; they store references to the source documents containing the data. Hence, when you change and save the source documents, all graphic viewers that contain a reference to the modified data source will be updated.
 The graphic sublayers manager allows creating multiple charts on each viewer page, overlaying XY charts, changing the stacking order of graphics, hiding/showing graphic objects, locking/unlocking objects in specific positions on the viewer page, modifying the transparency of fills, lines and markers, and more.

OneWay Box & Whisker and BoxPercentile Plots
 Regular and Notched box & whisker with the following options are available for plotting the whisker and outliers:
 Whiskers are extended to extreme data points
 Q1  1.5 * IQR, Q3 + 1.5 * IQR
 Q1  1.5 * IQR, Q3 + 1.5 * IQR (and outliers)
 10th percentile, 90th percentile
 10th percentile, 90th percentile (and outliers)
 5th percentile, 95th percentile
 5th percentile, 95th percentile (and outliers)
 Boxpercentile is a box chart that uses width to encode information about the shape of the distributions.
OneWay Bar and Line Plots
 Mean bar or line (comparing mean values as a bar or line graph)
 Median bar or line (comparing median values as a bar or line graph)
 Max. bar orline (comparing maximum values as a bar oe line graph)
 Min. bar or line (comparing minimum values as a bar opr line graph)
Curve Fitting and Regression

Applying Error BarsIn Aabel, error bars can be applied to:

Graphic File Export Support
Format for exporting graphics
 Bit images (raster files), including:
 BMP
 JPEG
 TIFF
 PNG
 Bitmap PICT
 Photoshop
 SGI
 TGA
Customizing Tools for Data Representation
Numerous, easy to use tools are available for chart customizing:
Unicode Support
 A palette that holds 176 Unicode characters/symbols/glyphs is available for data representation. Each item in this palette can be replaced by a Unicode character/glyph from the System character palette, and can be scaled from 50 to 200% of the initial size (100%) in 20 steps.
 Citrin supports Unicode for storing data in worksheets, for graphing data, and for creating tables, and text lines.
Markers and Lines for Data Representation
 Citrin markers: A palette with 175 marker symbols, each of which can be scaled from 50 to 200% of the initial size (100%) in 20 steps.
 Line attributes: Controls for selecting different line types, thickness, and color.
 Unicode glyphs/symbols.
Customizing Chart Axis Attributes
 Flexible customizing tools are available for modifying the chart axis attributes, e.g., linear or logarithmic scale, forward or reverse, the axis range, changing extended date or numeric display formats, or modifying the attributes of axis lines, titles, labels, etc.
Color Management
 The color palettes and color gradient palettes in Citrin are represented using default colors. However, you can freely change the items of a palette or create new color gradients from simple, complex, or pure colors, with a few clicks of the mouse.
Managing Transparency
 The transparency manager allows separate control of transparency in fills, lines, and markers.
Quartz Patterns
 Quartz patterns are available for customizing fills.
 Quartz patterns are vector drawings (stencil patterns) and are designed for use with the Quartz graphic system and PDF.
