Data Tool is a data analysis tool for plotting and fitting data from laboratory experiments, simulations, video analysis, or any other data set organized into columns.  Data Tool allows the user to plot multiple columns, control the appearance and scale of plots, view statistics, measure slope and area, manually or automatically fit built-in and user-defined functions to experimental data, and define new columns as functions of existing columns. See the Data Tool online help for additional information.

Data Tool is part of a suite of Open Source Physics tools. The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the osp_data_tool.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.

Hallo,
I like the DataTool program and do use it for Physical Science.
I would like to contribute a german translation for the program,
if you are interested.

Please contact me.

Bye,
Frank

Ups,
I reply to myself. Just seen that the translation has already been done.

Thank you.
