First Data Browsers For The Finder
April 7, 2008
VVI once again leads the way with the first data visualization plugin
for the Finder. This breakthrough technology features:
– Seamless Integration: Install the plugin and view data files through the
Finder. There is no need to launch a separate application and all of the
browsing features of the Finder are available, including sorting by file
attributes and display with cover flow, icon and list views.
– State Of The Art: Includes 32-bit and 64-bit versions in one integrated
– Extended Plugins: Plugins can be extended to handle 3D, log, polar, and
other graph types according to the user’s specific needs. A premade example
plugin handles the staple of engineering: line graphs.
– Legendary Formatting Options: Graphics and effects are specified using an
advanced graph building tool. This gives easy access to hundreds of effects
and attributes that help show off the beauty of graphs within the Finder.
Never before has browsing data files been so easy. An example plugin for
line graphs can be downloaded at this URL: http://www.vvi.com/
