g3data(1) A tool for extracting data from graphs.


g3data [-max x y] [-scale factor] [-coords llx lly rux ruy] [-errors] [-lnx] [-lny] [filename(s) ...]



g3data is a tool for extracting data from scanned graphs. For graphs published in scientific articles the actual data is usually not explicitly given ; g3data makes the process of extracting this data easy.


-max x y
If picture is larger x-wise than x or y-wise than y, the picture is scaled down accordingly otherwise this parameter has no effect.
-scale factor
Scales the picture size by factor. This parameter nullifies effect of the -max parameter.
-coords llx lly rux ruy
Preset the coordinates of the left lower (ll) corner and the right upper (ru) corner.
Print out the error of the x value in column 3 and the error of y value in column 4 of the output.
Use logarithmic scale for x coordinates.
Use logarithmic scale for y coordinates.
filename(s) ...
The filename(s) of the image(s) to open. Supported image formats: PNG, XPM, JPEG, TIFF, PNM, RAS, BMP and GIF.
