## Colormapped Line Series

User asked how to map color of each spectrum to a different color in a colormap based on Column label row values and show the color scale on the graph as follows. Though Origin’s line plot can easily assign a … Continued

## Where Did My Zero Dose Go for Dose Response Curves???

The Issue A question that comes up frequently is why Origin may not plot or fit a dose value of 0 (zero) for dose response curves (and those that are similar). It usually boils down to the following simple mathematical … Continued

## Animating 2D Plots Using Labtalk and a Series of Coefficients

One of Origin’s more advanced features is its ability to generate animated plot videos using little more than some basic functions, a series of coefficients, a script that iterates through them, and a video codec output. In this post we’ll be … Continued

## Visualizing the Negative Log

Introduction: The logarithm of a negative value is not defined in the real space. But in practical applications, we occasionally see that the magnitude of the data changes exponentially even in the negative area. How can we present such data … Continued

## Making Dynamic Inset Graphs

Oftentimes when plotting data you may find you want to display a zoomed-in section of a graph to make otherwise cluttered graphs more clear to the viewer. Fortunately Origin provides its users with a number of ways to display different portions of their data. To follow this blog, … Continued
