Summary: — FlexiTrace does one thing quite well, it converts existing graphs and plots into digital data, i.e. it can turn an x-y plot of temperature vs. time into pairs of temperature-time values. Before FlexiTrace can perform its magic, you need to bring an image of the graph or plot into your Mac. This requires that your Mac have access to either a scanner or fax software.
