Math and Graphs
I am trying to find Java sources for a decent scientific plotting
package, with things like autoscaling, log axis, markers, zoom, and pan.
The graphing applets I have seen do not have nearly enough capability to
make them better than dumping bitmaps from an established package such
as gnuplot. The applets I've seen also look like they were fairly
difficult to code. It almost seems like we're back in the dark days of
the IBM PC before an affordable, usable graphics subroutine library was
written in Turbo Pascal.
It is amazing that there isn't something like Gnuplot in Java.
There are business graphics, and web statistics graphics, but
the work on scientific plotting has not reached the mainstream.
