Pros: There is no comparison between this and its competitors. Graphing is what it does and does well. The options range from linear or bar to 3d and functional response surfaces. The user can also smooth the data for graphing and has several options to do so. With the ability to conduct linear, nonlinear modeling, and ANOVA, this software may be all a person needs!

Cons: Don't expect to get much of a help file with this. While excel does a great job of walking a user through problems, I never thought that the Help file for sigma plot was that helpful. Instead, I think the user must really expect to spend some time with the software to learn it. The good news? The software is easy to work with!! Just get started. The data import is much easier than for R or Past, and the graphing features are exceptional as compared with excel.

SigmaPlot is great for low-mid level statistics

Pros: SigmaPlot will automatically test for normality and equal variance with simple statistical tests and let the user know if those assumptions failed and if a new test should be run. These are very helpful when analyzing large sets of data.

Cons: When making figures, the software can sometimes not show a set of data. The figure tab needs to be closed and reopened for the figure to be fully shown.

Overall: Our business uses SigmaPlot for data analysis of large data sets as well as for publication grade figures.

Pros: The quality of the graph produced far exceeds any other software program, and it provides lots of basic and advanced options for data analysis - for me, it has everything I need to visualize data and evaluate trends (statistically) over time.

Cons: There's a bit of a learning curve to the tricks of the trade, but once you get there you are good...

Overall: We use SigmaPlot for data analysis and graphing, producing high quality images that get published in our manuscripts submitted to journals.

Pros: Its useful in the analysis statistical, multivariate, fitting curves, 3D visualization. The graphs dont see like simple toys, are vero professional and complete. Its really good for make the graph and visualizations for papers and similar publications.

Cons: Will be that any say that have tricks for better and fast efficient but i think that permit make many variations impossibles with software like spreadsheets.

Pros: I like the ease of use of the software. All of the components used to analyze graphs are easy to find and work really. The ease of use is comparable to Microsoft Excel which is a major plus since there is not a steep learning curve to learning the software. Also the ability to export an editable graph to a word doc, powerpoint, or any other software is useful if you want to place a graph as a place holder and go back to edit later.

Cons: The costs of the software can get a little high due to it being subscription based, if you're a student like me and only use it a few times a month it is hard to justify the price. However, if you're a professional and use the software daily the price is very reasonable.

Overall: Producing professional graphs that are used in presentations, papers, and progress reports. Saved a lot of time since the software is the easiest to learn scientific graphing program I have used.

Pros: It can give the user both 3D and 2D graphical representation of data. It is easy to use especially for those learning data analysis, as it provides a step by step guidance when analyzing data.

Cons: Does not directly integrate with Microsoft Excel, the user has to copy paste the data in excel to powerpoint before using it.

Overall: It generates a graphical representation of data quickly and easily. Anybody can use it, including those who are learning data analysis.

Pros: The commands are extremely simple. It took me approximately 30 minutes or less to figure it all out. I recommend this software especially to plot graphs for academic publications!

Cons: All comands have to be entered manually. That can be a drawback depending on how many graphs you need to plot. For that matlab might be a better option.

Pros: Really like having the ability to make graphs that are easily understandable. Before this, I was using a spreadsheet program to make my displays, and it just can't always display your data as appropriately as Sigmaplot. The final product looks professional, and not lazy or cartoonish.

Cons: It's not really the easiest to figure out. Even being familiar with the results I am trying to display, and the layout of the data, it sometimes takes a little more work than expected to get my visuals to look the way I want.

Comments: Sigmaplot makes great graphs and does some good statistical analyses. However, each new release seems to incorporate new bugs, of which there are many. I use sigmaplot when I have to but I also save often because it crashes often. If you get frustrated by ArcGIS, don't use Sigmaplot. Sigmaplot is way more frustrating.
