Summary: -- FlexiTrace does one thing quite well, it converts existing graphs and plots into digital data, i.e
I started by purchasing FlexiGraphs, TreeStar's business graphics application, not for generating graphs, but for a crude, yet effective, data digitizing feature
FlexiTrace is an application for digitizing data. In scientific/engineering work one often needs to digitize line plots, something versus time is typical, that were generated by others, or the original x-y data points are otherwise not available, e.g
After launching FlexiTrace use the OPEN... option under the FILE menu to open your scanned image or one of the sample images that accompany FlexiTrace
Easy to use!
Does the job at hand with a few features that make the result impressive, rather than acceptable.
The $249 list price is a bit high. I paid (me, not my company) $149 for FlexiGraphs and did not blink an eye because FlexiGraphs did what I needed to have done, and there was no more cost-effective solution
I would like to be able to edit the digitized data, i.e. delete, add, or modify points and see where the modified data appears relative to the scanned image
Overall, what I like best about FlexiTrace is that it does the job just the way I want to have it done, simple yet effective. As a user I have the impression that the developers actually USED this software
