Boulder, COLO. — Visual Numerics, Inc., a developer of web-enabled data visualization, numerical analysis and enterprise software solutions, announced that PV WAVE Version 7.01 is now available.
PV-WAVE is a family of easy-to-use software products that let engineers, scientists, researchers and business analysts understand large and complex datasets using a wide variety of visual techniques. PV-WAVE’s interactive, array-based scripting language allows users to rapidly develop platform-neutral applications for manipulating, analyzing and visualizing these datasets to detect and display trends, patterns and anomalies. The software includes hundreds of sophisticated mathematical and statistical functions from the company’s IMSL C Numerical Library (CNL), as well as image processing, signal processing and general mapping functionality.
The two primary enhancements in Version 7.01 are the addition of new graphical user interface tools that facilitate the creation of bar charts and pie charts; and the addition of nine new CNL routines, which brings to 197 the total number of CNL routines integrated into PV-WAVE.
“By definition, Version 7.01 is not a major release, but it does illustrate our continual effort to provide the functionality that our customers deem important in a timely manner,” said Margaret Journey, the PV-WAVE product manager at Visual Numerics.
Journey continued, “By strengthening PV-WAVE’s GUI tools, we made it possible for some users to more quickly glean information from their data. And by adding nine new CNL routines, we further separated PV-WAVE from competing products that don’t offer the same level of numerical analysis functionality. We elected to include these enhancements in a minor release now, rather than wait for the next major release, because our customers want technology advancements as soon as they’re available and we’re here to meet their needs.”
PV-WAVE 7.01 is available for many popular operating systems: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Unix (Sun, HP, SGI, Compaq & IBM), OpenVMS, and Linux. Windows and Linux pricing starts at $1,500.Unix and OpenVMS pricing starts at $3,495.
