CALGARY, Alberta - June 7, 2010 - Calgary-based Mistaya Engineering Inc. has announced a major new release of Windographer, its flagship wind data analysis software. Windographer is used worldwide to analyze wind resource data measured by met tower, SoDAR, or LiDAR. It improves the productivity of data analysts, performs sophisticated calculations, and creates clear and attractive graphs.
The centerpiece of the new version is a powerful new quality control system that lets users highlight, classify, and filter data by applying user-defined flags to data segments. Users can apply flags both through visual inspection and with formal search criteria, and then include or exclude the flagged data from calculations, graphs, and export files.
The new flagging mechanism makes the quality control process faster, more traceable, and more consistent across multiple data sets and multiple analysts. Having the ability to create flag rules provides ultimate control and flexibility. Once created, it takes just two clicks, to identify all the instances of tower shading, or icing, or any other scenario you want to identify. Every flag operation is recorded and reversible, you can even save them and use them company-wide.
"Our users love this new approach," said Tom Lambert, president of Mistaya Engineering, "because it lets them filter data so quickly without deleting anything, and it leaves a clear paper trail."
Windographer 2.0 is available in four editions: Student, Basic, Standard and Professional. A new website, www.windographer.com, allows customers to download a free trial, view demo videos, compare editions, and purchase directly online.
