Math and Data plotting and analysis programs
There are some commercial solutions such as origin, sigmaplot, matlab etc, which are exceedingly expensive. Even on a student licence, you have to pay a lot and if you are not a student any longer, what are you going to do with your work..... However there are some freeware (or cheap shareware) programs that may do the job. Some of these programs can load origin format files, although at times, figures have to be retouched. Here just a selection of programs I used, a comprehensive list can be found on Wikipedia 'List of information graphics software'
Shareware for Linux, Windows and Apple, costs vary on type of licence and include helpline. Origin project imports work fine, some minor retouching on the imported graphs may be neccessary
SciDAVis (Scientific Data Analysis and Visualization), works fine under Linux and Windows, as long as you start your project with this program, however import of origin, excel and qti (recent version) files is not working very well or at all.
Labplot available for Linux, included in most distributions as part of the KDEducation
Octave a Matlab clone available for Linux and windows, 4th generation computer language very close to Matlab. Frontends are also available. Scilab is similar, however the syntax is somewhat different from Matlab.
