Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

DataDesk 7 released


I’m delighted to report DataDesk 7 has been released, this update requires a Macintosh computer running Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, or 10.9 and Intel processor and 2 GB RAM.

Data Desk brings fast, easy-to-use visual analysis to your desktop. It provides interactive graphical tools for exploring and understanding your data—for finding the patterns, relationships, and exceptions. While it implements many traditional statistics techniques suitable for data from planned experiments and sample surveys, Data Desk’s true strength is its powerful tools for data exploration. Its insightful graphic displays simplify intuitive investigation of your data.

DataDesk can handle very large datasets (up to 2 billion cases), it supports a wide variety of statistical techniques and supports linked plots so that selections in one plot are highlighted in another so you get multiple views of your data. They have supported the Mac since the mid 1980’s and I suspect it is now the oldest commercial application for the Mac. A series of continuous updates have kept DataDesk at the forefront of data analysis. The accompanying manual also serves as an invaluable resource for learning statistical analysis.

I’ve updated the list of data analysis tools available for the Mac.
