Introduction
Create any graph you want in Grapher 8! Edit it quickly and easily
with the alwaysavailable Property Inspector.
Grapher is an easy to understand technical graphing package for anyone who needs to create publicationquality graphs quickly and easily. With Grapher, creating graphs is quick and easy.
Create one of more than 40 unique 2D or 3D graph types in Grapher 8! Customize any portion of any graph to make the graph completely unique to your situation! There are four different types of 2D graphs that can be created in Grapher: linear, bar, polar, and specialty graph types. In addition, many of these graph types are available with a 3D aspect. If you need an extra variable plotted on your graph, try one of the 3D XYZ graphs, the contour maps, or surface maps!

Grapher Graph Types

Graph Types Available
with Grapher
Display your data as one of
more than 40 different graph types in Grapher 8. Combine multiple graph
types to present your data in a completely new way! Alter any property
of any of the graph types to create compelling new graphs.
Create line plots
with plotted symbols, comments, and fit curves.


Class scatter
plots put the data into groups or "classes" based on
values in a worksheet column. 
Scatter plots can
also use varying repeating symbols, or different symbols for each
point. 

Ribbon/wall plots are
similar to line plots, but are shown with a 3D aspect!
3D Line/Scatter plots are used to display the location of points
with three variables. Display the data as lines, symbols or as lines
and symbols. Add wall projections, drop lines, or labels to
emphasis data on your graph!


Ribbon/wall plots
can be customized with
comments, fit curves, error bars, and legends. 
Display lines or
symbols in three dimensions
with the 3D XYZ Plot. Add drop lines or wall projections! 
Create step plots
with horizontal or vertical lines in 2D or 3D.

Bubble Plots display
data with varying sized symbols. The size of the symbol is dependent
on a third variable. Change the bubble to any symbol! Use a 2D
bubble plot that displays three variables or a 3D bubble plot that
shows the change in four variables. Use solid colors, gradient
fill colors, multiple fill colors, or any combination of color
choices to fill your bubble plots!
Create bubble plots
to show how one extra variable relates to the normal XY or XYZ
variables. Display in two or three dimensions!

Bar Charts display data
as adjacent or stacked bars. Choose to have vertical or horizontal
bars. Bar charts can be displayed as 2D or 3D! Use multiple
colors, gradient fill colors, or a combination of color choices for
bar charts. Display labels at the top of bars, at the bottom
of bars, or in both locations. Add error bars directly to your
bar charts.
Create bar charts with
horizontal or vertical bars.
Floating
bar charts can be displayed with multiple colored variables in
either
vertical or horizontal orientation.

Function Plots display
mathematical functions. Plot Y as a function of X, or plot a
parametric equation where X and Y are a function of a third
variable, T. Function plots can be shown in a 2D or 3D orientation.
Specify a function or
equation to create a graph. Position the axes anywhere on the
page. Break axes to reveal interesting trends in your data.

HiLowClose Graphs
display a range of Y values at each X value. These plots are
commonly used to display the high, low, opening and closing of stock
values, though HiLowClose graphs are also used for many other
purposes. Hilowclose graphs can be displayed with the standard
line or with bars, the "candlestick" graph.
Track stock performance
with the HighLowClose Graph. Overlay a
bestfit curve to predict future performance. Display as a candlestick
plot for even faster onelook analysis.

Polar Graphs display
degree, radian or grad data versus a radial distance. The degree,
radian or grad data are displayed on a circular angle axis. The
second axis is a radial axis showing the distance from the center of
the circle. Polar plots can display mathematical functions,
data, bars, or classed scatter plots. Display in degree, radian, or
grad data.



Angle axes can
display text for labels. Combine multiple polar plots in a single
graph. 
Similar to XY bar
charts, polar bar charts allow comparison of multiple bars on the
angular axis. 
Polar function
plots display curves using mathematical functions. 

Rose Diagrams display
degree, radian or grad data versus a radial axis. Like histograms,
Rose Diagrams display statistical data, showing the number of
occurrences of an event that fall within a specific angular region.
Bins are fully customizable in rose diagrams!

Rose
diagrams can display statistical
information
similar to histograms. 

Wind Charts graph
frequency vs. wind direction. Bins are created according to the wind
speed. The frequency can be viewed as counts, relative frequency, or
as percentages of relative frequency. Bins are fully customizable!

Wind charts can
show wind direction binned by speed. 
Display the pie
together or explode a slice.
On a Pie Chart, choose how to label each slice.

Stiff plots can
be color filled to aid in the interpretation of the graph. 
Display the Ternary
Diagram with or without labels.
Add lines between the points to show trends.

Histograms display data
separated into groups or bins. Add labels, a Gaussian fit, and
display the Y axis as relative frequency to change the display of
this graph. Display histograms as either 2D or 3D!
Display statistical
information on a Histogram Graph. Set the number and size of
bins.

BoxWhisker plots are
commonly used to show the min, max, median, and lower and upper
quartiles for a particular group. The caps at the end of each box
indicate the extreme values (min and max).
Grapher Template Graphs
Create a graph with the desired colors, number formats, tick mark spacing, legend styles, etc., and save it as a template graph for use with multiple data sets.
Project Files
Create a graph with the desired worksheet and save it as a project file. Project files save the data used inside the file. After the graph is created and saved as a project file, the external worksheet is no longer needed by the project file.
Grapher Axes
Grapher has four axis scales: linear, logarithmic (base 10), natural logarithmic, and probability. Use Grapher's default settings or specify custom settings for all axis parameters. Set the axis scale, change the axis length and starting position, add additional or duplicate axes, change axis limits, enter an axis title, add grid lines, break the axis, or hide the axis on your graph. On each axis, you control the major and minor tick frequency and spacing or you can use Grapher's default settings. If the data uses date and time as one of the data columns, axis labels are automatically generated using dates and times. In addition, manual date/time labels can be created or labels can be read from a worksheet, allowing you to use any type of tick labeling.
Break axes and display dates to interpret
your data faster!
Date and Time Compatibility
Use date and time entries in the worksheet as a data column in Grapher 4. Grapher will automatically use date and time labels on the axis. Clip the curve, limit the axis minimum and maximum using date and time values. Set axis tick marks based on a calendar frequency such as once per month, twice per year, or once per every four hours.
Graph date and time entries directly from the worksheet.
Display worksheet ticks quickly with dates.
Grapher Error Bars
Error Bars are displayed on Line and Symbol Graphs. Display error bars for the average value, sample standard deviation, population standard deviation, or standard error of the mean. Or, calculate custom error bars in the worksheet and display them on the graph.
Labels and Curve Filling
Labels can be added to most graph types. All properties of the labels can be changed easily, including numeric format, adding bold, or italics, changing the font size or style, or changing the label color. In addition, labels can be moved so that neighboring labels do not overlap. Most graph types also support curve filling. Fill can be defined between two curves or by using a single curve. With a single curve, fill above, below, to the left, or to the right of the curve. Choose to fill to the axis minimum or maximum or to a customized data value.
