Beta Tester Feedback on the Latest Release of Our 2D & 3D Graphing Program – Grapher™ 12

Beta Tester Feedback on the Latest Release of Our 2D & 3D Graphing Program – Grapher™ 12

Prior to any release, our software undergoes a rigorous 6 week external testing period. This testing period, referred to as Beta Testing, gives a select group of Grapher customers an opportunity to provide their input on the new features and to test the functionality in their everyday use of the product. These individuals are extremely important to the final release as their input and testing ensures we have a stable and upgrade-worthy product.

During the Grapher 12 Beta Testing period, 20 individuals completed the testing period. Below are their comments on the newest set of Grapher features.

33 Years of Customer-Focused Mapping and Graphing

33 Years of Customer-Focused Mapping and Graphing

I was recently interviewed by Scientific Computing World (you can read the full article here), a global publication dedicated to providing computing and information technology resources to scientists and engineers. During this interview, I enjoyed discussing how the needs of these scientists and engineers have changed, and how Golden Software will continue meeting their needs in these ever changing times.

The month of March marks our 33rd anniversary, and as you can imagine, we have witnessed many changes over the past three decades! It’s difficult to recall days where printed image resolution of 24dpi was the norm, but that’s where we began. Our first product, PlotCall, was a breakthrough and offered 200dpi imagery resolution for computer generated maps. Fast forward to today and you’ll see our products used to generate maps and graphs for scientific publications, cutting-edge research, business intelligence reports, and even expert witness documents.

Fun Personal Uses of Golden Software Products for Geo-Nerds

We here at Golden Software are geo-nerds (or geo-geeks, if you prefer). We really are passionate about maps and map-making, both on the job and in our free time. I’m not saying I’m a workaholic, but it’s hard to separate work from home when you love what you do! As such, I was very excited to show my kids the books listed in the 15 Picture Books That Support Children’s Spatial Skills Development article (in case you’re wondering, our favorites were Shrinking Mouse, Big Bug, and You Are (Not) Small).

I also often think of uses for our software in my personal life. One project I have ‘on the books’, so to speak, is mapping out our unfinished basement in Surfer, so we can design a finished product in order to procure a building permit. Another work-in-progress is a MapViewer pin map with locations and attributes for each of the playgrounds that we’ve visited locally. A project I have recently completed is designing a play area for my kids. We live in an HOA neighborhood, so everything outside belongs to the HOA, and we need to get approval to put or build anything out there. Since our patio is too small for a playground and we have some space that’s hidden from the road between our garage and our house, I thought I would get approval to build a sandbox there that we can put a slide in and perhaps add a swing set to later. Here is the result:

Customer Spotlight: Dr. Eric Delmelle Uses Voxler 3D Data Visualization For Space-Time

Golden Software customers possess a broad assortment of backgrounds from earth sciences and engineering to education and politics. This vast background results in a variety of uses for Golden Software's products. Each customer uses the software in a unique way, and we are pleased to share these stories. This blog article features Dr. Eric Delmelle, a professor of GIS and Health Geography in the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at the University of North Carolina, and his use of Voxler, among other applications, to visualize space-time patterns of human behaviors and human health issues.

Dr. Delmelle's research focuses on answering fundamental epidemiological questions where spatial and spatiotemporal methodology is a critical avenue for analysis. He uses robust geocomputational methodologies that "deepen our understanding on the dynamics of infectious and non-infectious diseases". Dr. Delmelle is dedicated to the development of new visualization techniques that detect space-time patterns at different scales and leverage state of the art computational techniques to generate predictive models that could ultimately have influence on health decisions in the public sector.
