This free program, written by Patrick Berg, is a tool for plotting data on the screen from BESA format files (*.avr, *.fsg), Konstanz format files (*.raw, .sum), and ASCII files containing either vectorized or multiplexed data.
Implemented features include the following:
- Plots are controlled by an ASCII control file (.plb), which you can edit within BPlot or with your own text editor program (e.g. TextPad, Notepad). To learn how to use BPlot, you need to learn how to write commands in the control file
- Draw data curves from selected channels in various colors and line styles
- Meta-commands allow you to draw a set of curves in a topographic distribution extremely simply and efficiently
- Draw amplitude and Laplacian (CSD) maps, either as contours, or solid colors. Solid color maps use two colors (usually red, blue) with varying intensities. Maps can be drawn from 6 viewpoints: top, bottom, left, right, front, back
- Scales (x-axis, amplitude, map color scale)
- Labels (text)
- Curve types (i.e. a straight line with selected line style and color, combined with a label)
- It is possible to specify the location, line style and color on the screen for each object
- Data from several different files can be presented in one plot. BESA fsg and KN-format: data from different segments/epochs can be presented in one plot
- On-screen editing: drag objects to new locations. Change map latency using Shift-Cursor-Left/Right. Change map amplitude and label size using Shift-Cursor-Up/Down. A double-click on an object node, or a right-click dropdown menu allows more detailed editing with dialog boxes, e.g. color changes
- High-resolution printing
- Images can be saved in TIFF, JPEG, Windows Bitmap (bmp) formats, using either the current window resolution, or a different (e.g. much higher) predefined resolution
The program runs under Windows 9x, ME, 2000, NT, XP. For a free download of the latest version of BPlot (4.144.521 bytes, March 04, 2011) click here!
