DataExplore

Application for plotting and analyzing tabulated data.

Introduction

This application is intended for educational/scientific use and allows quick visualization of data with convenient plotting functions. Though the program has a spreadsheet like interface, the focus is on data manipulation with very configurable 2D/3D plotting rather than data entry. Though basic cell editing and row/column changes are supported. The program is free and open source. It is based on a Python widget called pandastable which itself is a graphical frontend to the pandas DataFrame class.
