Supported Data Import Formats
• Excel format: 95, 97-2004 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 built-in date & time formats, and tools for custom-defining 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 out-of-range values (impossible values, punching errors, etc.) and highlighting them in the corresponding worksheet rows
• Dealing with out-of-range values using different options
Worksheet Information and Notebook
The worksheet notebook has four functions:
• It displays a list of all variables present in the worksheet
• If a worksheet has been generated from the results of data filtering, the user-defined filter criteria will be stored in the worksheet notebook
• If the worksheet has been generated from cross-tabulating 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 Formula Editor
• The formula editor provides 46 pre-defined 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 real-time, two way interaction with data.
• The graphic viewer toolbar provides tools for interacting with data, zooming, moving and resizing graphics, creating tables and single-line 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 X-Y 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.
Binary Scatter and Scatter Series Charts
• Binary scatter providing 9 graph styles
• X-Y horizontal scatter series
• X-Y vertical scatter Series
• Scatter series (across X categories)
• Scatter Series (across Y categories)
• Double Y horizontal scatter series
• Double X vertical scatter series
• Double X-Y horizontal scatter series
• Double X-Y vertical scatter series
• X-Y line series (sort along X)
• X-Y line series (sort along Y)
• Line series (across X categories)
• Line series (across Y categories)
• Double Y line series (sort along X values)
• Double X line series (sort along Y values)
• Double Y line series (sort along X categories)
• Double Y line series (sort along Y categories)
Column, Bar, and Area Charts
• Column and charts
• Stacked column and stacked bar charts
• Clustered column and clustered bar charts
• X-Y (value-axes) column and bar charts
• Area charts
• stacked area charts
3-D Column, Pyramid, Band, and Area Charts
• For generating vector graphics, the options include:
º Rectangular prism/column (Quartz)
º Pyramid (Quartz)
º Pointed rectangular prism (Quartz)
º Hexagonal and pointed hexagonal prism (Quartz)
º Area (Quartz)
º Band (Quartz)
• 2-D pie chart
• 3-D pie chart
Frequency Distribution/ Histograms
• Histograms of continuous data: absolute, relative, cumulative, z-score
• Histograms of categorical data: absolute, relative, cumulative, z-score
• Pareto charts
• Normal Probability
• Uniform Probability
One-Way Box & Whisker and Box-Percentile Plots
• Regular and Notched box & whisker with the following options are available for plotting the whisker and outliers:
º Whiskers are extended to extreme data points
º Q1 - 1.5 * IQR, Q3 + 1.5 * IQR
º Q1 - 1.5 * IQR, Q3 + 1.5 * IQR (and outliers)
º 10th percentile, 90th percentile
º 10th percentile, 90th percentile (and outliers)
º 5th percentile, 95th percentile
º 5th percentile, 95th percentile (and outliers)
• Box-percentile is a box chart that uses width to encode information about the shape of the distributions.
One-Way 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
º X on Y and through zero
º Major axis
º Reduced major axis
• Cubic spline interpolation
Applying Error Bars
In Aabel, error bars can be applied to:
• Binary scatter plots
• Matrix Scatter diagram
• Scatter series
• Line series
• Column and bar charts (including stacked and clustered columns and bars)
• Area and stacked area charts
Error bars can be symmetrical or asymmetrical, and can be based on:
º Standard error
º Standard deviation
º Fixed values
º Values of a variable (e.g., calculated errors, etc.)
Graphic File Export Support
Format for exporting graphics
• Bit images (raster files), including:
º Bitmap PICT
Customizing Tools for Data Representation
Numerous, easy to use tools are available for chart customizing:
• 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.
• 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.
• The transparency manager allows separate control of transparency in fills, lines, and markers.
• 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.
