|Calculate circular-normal statistics including Watson's two-sample
test, and create rose diagrams and flight-bearing diagrams.
Vector Rose 3.0 is an orientation analysis application that calculates circular-normal statistics and plots a circular histogram, linear histogram or class frequencies for any set of angular data, or any data with a circular normal distribution.
Watson's two-sample nonparametric test statistic is now available as part of the Vector Rose application at no additional cost.
This statistic tests if two sets of angular data are from the same parent population.
Simultaneous multiple views of data displays
Linear histogram of data
Additional class intervals (all possible even subdivisions of 360)
Variable fill color
Variable fill pattern
Improved control over diagram options
Improved diagram quality
Interactive angular readings from mouse position
The program features unidirectional or bidirectional circular (rose
or flight-bearing) histograms, with the diagrams scaled relative to maximum
class frequency (length or equal area), or scaled relative to 100%. Class
interval limits are provided for all divisions evenly divisible into 360,
from 1 to 180 degrees. The axis scale may be represented as concentric
circles or as a vertical line with tick marks. The position of North or
0 degrees can be rotated to any desired position.
Vector Rose 3.0 diagrams can be saved as MacDraw PICT documents.
Graphical output is represented as the traditional rose diagram with arcs,
or as a unit circle with a scaled resultant vector inside and observations
plotted outside (see graphics below). Once in a draw-type application,
all elements of the rose diagram are completely editable. Diagrams can
be re-sized or graphically enhanced by pasting the image into any application
that accepts graphics, even Microsoft Word!
System requirements: Any Macintosh. System 7.x and MacOS-8 & 9.
Requires Classic to run in Mac OSX.
Price: $150 US; upgrade price from any previous version: $75.
