Elegant Plot Design
There are over 80 plots available in NCSS. Some plots are part of a general analysis procedure such as analysis of variance or regression, while other plots are standalone tools.
All NCSS plots are highly customizable. Users are given control of the layout, symbols, titles, legend, axes, grid lines, and more. Plot settings are easily saved for future use or for sharing.
A variety of training videos are available through this website, featuring each aspect of plotting in NCSS. Click here to watch a graphics introduction video.

Navigation of the output is easy with the output navigation tree. The output and graphics are ready to be viewed, copied and pasted, or saved. Multiple output runs can be sent to the output gallery for saving or for comparing analyses.
