  • Scientific Plots on the Mac

    I have been following this discussion and I am somewhat surprised that
    nobody has mentioned GraphPad Prism. Although it is a PC based software, it
    will run on a PowerMac equipped with a PowerPC chip and 'SoftWindows'. I am
    not a Mac user (nor am I in any way affiliated with the company), so I can't
    comment on how successfully it does this. I have used the PC version
    extensively and highly recommend it. It's intuitive and quick to learn and
    provides excellent quality presentation-type graphics. Error bars too -
    anyway you'd like them!! The one drawback is that its not a spreadsheet
    package. It does have some spreadsheet capabilities but they're a bit
    cumbersome and frustrating to use. We use it here for 'final-product'
    graphics and just import the data from a spreadsheet or as an ascii-text
    file. Anyway, GraphPad does offer a 90 day no-obligation trial period for
    their product, and they have a website for those who may be interested:
