The new release of WinIDAMS (1.2) is available now

20-08-2004 ()
Following the suggestions of some users, WinIDAMS release 1.2 includes new features in 3 programs, in the User Interface as well as in the interactive data analysis components. Moreover, several bugs have also been fixed.
User Interface

In the interactive import facility, the user can control the interpretation of the first 4 records of the external file to be imported before going further.

From the Data window, two types of diagrams for the selected variable can be obtained:

Bar chart based on either frequencies or percentages for qualitative variable categories or based on the user defined number of bars for quantitative variables. In addition, normal distribution curve having the calculated mean and standard deviation can be projected for quantitative variables.

Histogram, meant for quantitative variables, based either on frequencies or on percentages with the number of bins specified by the user. It provides also univariate statistics such as: mean, standard deviation, variance, skewness and kurtosis.

IDAMS programs

DISCRAN - possibility to create a dataset containing transferred variables, case assignment variables, sample type and values of the discriminant factors, if any.

SORMER - possibility of saving in an output a copy of the input dictionary.

TABLES - a number of statistics for Evidence Based Medicine.

Interactive graphical exploration of data (GraphID)

Possibility of projecting a two-dimensional scatter plot within cells of a two-dimensional table.

Possibility of saving and recuperating in subsequent session(s), the sequential number of the cases masked during the session.

Interactive time series analysis (TimeSID)

New analysis facilities: spectral analysis, cross-spectrum analysis and frequency filters decomposition.
