Introduction
What is Origin
Origin is a technical graphing package. It is available to users who have registered for the
Managed Windows Service. We now have a site licence and you can buy the CD from the
CSD helpdesk for a nominal cost.

Origin can be used effectively to produce all types of graphs and charts. It includes a nonlinear
curve fitter, worksheets that accommodate large datasets and summary statistics. It has what it
calls a mathematical transform language that allows you to manipulate and analyse data.

Using this Workbook
This workbook contains a number of examples that are designed to show you some of the
the toolbars.

For versions of Origin manuals in PDF form, please see the OriginLAB website:

http://www.originlab.com/index.aspx?s=12&lm=+66

It is assumed in this workbook that you are familiar with the use of Windows packages; i.e.
you know what is meant by the following terms:

      Windows
      Clicking
      Double-clicking
      Dragging
      Toolbars
      File browsers

If you are not familiar with using the Managed Windows Service, then it is suggested that you
look at the following web page

http://www.liv.ac.uk/csd/mws/index.htm

We also assume minimal knowledge of spreadsheets; i.e. you know what spreadsheets look
like and that you can use the mouse or arrow keys to move around the cells.

4
Getting Help
When you select Help on the top menu and then select Origin, you will see that Origin uses
the standard Windows help system. You are presented with four tabs and only one may be
selected at any one time. These are:

browse various topics

Index                            this allows you to see a list of index entries. You
can either type a subject or scroll through the list

Search                           this allows you to search a particular topic or the
entire Help file for a particular word or phrase.

Favourites                       this allows you to store particular Help topics of
interest and to recall them later.

Checkpoints
If you get stuck during an exercise but you do not want to start at the beginning of the exercise
again, you can load checkpoint files — stored in v:\originexs\chkpoints. At various stages in
the exercises, you are invited to use a suitable checkpoint file.

What is not Covered in Workbook
A workbook has to be selective in the type of examples it chooses to discuss. It is expected
that the audience will include users from different faculties, not all of whom are computer
literate or with a strong mathematical background. So a decision was made not to include the
following topics:

       Templates

       Themes

       Origin C and Code Builder

Users are referred to the Origin Tutorial pages or to the Origin User Guide for worked
examples on these topics. If anyone has suggestions for further exercises in this workbook,

2   Exercise 1 Draw a Graph
The aim of this exercise is to produce the following graph.

In this exercise, you will be proceeding through the following list of actions. Full instructions
will be given:

      Starting Origin 8.5
      Importing Data into Origin
      Examining the Worksheet
      Creating a Graph
      Setting the page size
      Adding a New Plot to a Graph
      Changing Line Styles
      Adding a Title, Legend and Axis Titles
      Changing the printer settings
      Creating a graph using Multi-lines
      Zooming in on part of the graph
      Exiting Origin

6
Starting Origin Pro 8.5

      After logging on with your Windows 7 desktop on the screen, double–click the icon for
Windows Explorer and select Organise | Folder Options. Click the View tab and
check that Hide file extensions for known filetypes is switched off. Close down the
Windows Explorer window. This ensures that filetypes are not hidden in file browsers,

      Then look for Start | All Programs | OriginLab | Origin 8.5 | OriginPro 8.5 and
click it if it is there.

      If this is not present, then you need to install Origin. Click the Install University
Applications icon on desktop and look for Origin 8.5 SR1. You should not need to
reboot. Then click Start | All Programs | OriginLab | Origin 8.5 | OriginPro 8.5.

For more details on the installation, see Appendix 2.

      Maximise the Origin window. You are presented with the following screen. There is
usually one other window as well as the main Origin window. This is called Book1. We
shall initially concentrate on putting data into the worksheet called Book1.

      Click Format | Menu and ensure that Full Menus has been switched on.

Standard                                                                                                           Graph
Format                                                                                                             Style

2D Graphs
Status bar

You will be meeting the Status bar at the bottom and some of the tools on the toolbars later on.
Some of these toolbars are marked on the above picture (eg Standard, Format etc)

Note that, once you have installed Origin, you can start Origin in future by using the following
method. There is also an icon on the Desktop.:

Select Start | All Programs | OriginLab | Origin 8.5 | OriginPro 8.5.

Importing Data into Origin
Make sure that the window called Book 1 is highlighted and then follow these instructions:

      Select File | Import | Single ASCII.

7
      Navigate to the directory where the data is stored, in this case v:\originexs\exercises.

      Change the Files of type to All Files *.*.

      Select Exercise1.csv. The first few lines of this file are shown below.

Note that a comma is used to separate values in the original file. Origin detects that a comma
is used as a separator. Also, the first row contains column headings T, A1 etc. It is a common
practice to put column headings in a data file.

      Click on Open.

The data will now be loaded into the worksheet starting at the cell in Row1, Column 1.

Examining the Worksheet

An Origin worksheet is a spreadsheet. It consists of rows and columns. Values (data) or labels
(text) can be put into these cells. Each of the cells has a unique address. For example, the
address of the cell, which has the label A1, is Book1, 2, 1; i.e. the cell is in Book 1, column 2,
and row 1.

Origin is able to detect that there are column headings at the top of the file and so uses those
by default for the row called Long Name at the top of the worksheet. When you become more
familiar with using Origin, you will see that it has very comprehensive system for importing
data from a file or database into a worksheet

Worksheets can hold data imported from a file, alternatively data can be directly entered into
the worksheet. Also you can open an Excel spreadsheet in Origin (using File | Open Excel
not File | Import). Sometimes output worksheets are created as a result of a calculation.

8
Creating a Graph
After you have entered data into the worksheet, a graph can be produced using this data. There
are two ways of creating a simple 2D graph:

       EITHER click an icon on the 2D Graphs toolbar near the bottom of the window OR
choose one of the options from the Plot menu.

When more familiar with Origin, you can learn about the other types available, especially
those in the Template libraries.

The icons for 2D graph types available from the 2d Graphs toolbar are shown below.

When using the 2D graph toolbar, you can select some columns or a block of data. If no data
has been selected, Origin assumes you want all the data.

We want to produce a line graph showing A1 against T. To do this,

      Click on the heading for column A(X) and drag over to the heading for B(Y). Both
columns should be highlighted.

      Select the Line icon from the 2D Graphs toolbar. If a window appears about System
Theme, click the little box Don’t show this message in future and then click OK.

Setting the Page Size
It is a good idea to set the printer before doing major work. In this particular exercise, we want
an A4 plot in Landscape orientation.

      Go to File | Print and check that you are using one of the A4 laser printers. Click
Cancel

      Click File | Page Setup. The Paper Size should already have been set to A4 and the
Orientation should have been set to Landscape. Click OK

Next, check that you are using millimetres for your units:

      Go to Format | Page and click the Print/Dimensions tab

      Change the Units to mm if necessary and then click OK

You may want to resize the plot, so that it fills the page. To do this:

      Click somewhere on the white space inside the graph box (where the two axes are two
sides of the rectangular box). The box is highlighted.

      Resize the plot. Drag it to wherever you wish. Also, you can move the legend.

10
Checkpoint 1
If you have not obtained the picture below, then you can either load the file EX1CH1.OPJ
from v:\originexs\chkpoints\ or you can start from scratch.

Adding a New Plot to a Graph
A layer has one set of controlling axes. On the top left of the Graph window, the number 1
refers to Layer 1. Another exercise later shows how to add another layer with new set of axes.

To add another line to the first line on this layer:

      Click on the Worksheet window. (If this is not visible, then click Window | Exercise1
– Exercise1.csv). Select the heading A(X) and then pressing the CTRL key, select the
column heading C(Y). You should now have 2 columns highlighted.

You may have noticed that, when switching between the Worksheet window and the Graph
window, the menu at the top changed. For instance the Statistics menu only appears when the
Worksheet window is active. The Graph menu only appears when the Graph window is active.

      Click on the Graph window (called Graph1) and then select Graph | Add Plot to
Layer | Line

      Notice that the legend is not correct now. Select Graph | New Legend

You should now be presented with the following graph:

11
Changing Line Styles
We will now change the formatting of the lines so that the lines can be more easily
distinguished on the laser printer.

      Select Format | Plot. The Plot Details window appears, with the Line tab showing.

      Click the first line T(X).A1(Y) and make its Colour Red. Change the Colour of the
second line Navy and its Style to Dot. You may need to change its Width. Click OK.

Checkpoint 2
If you have not obtained the picture below, then you can either load the file EX1CH2.JNB
and start here or load the file EX1CH1.JNB and retrace the steps from Checkpoint 1.

12
Adding a Title, Legend and Axis Titles
It is worth pointing out at this stage that Origin has an object–oriented rationale. Double–
clicking on any object will allow you to change the properties of that object. For instance, try
double–clicking on one of the curves.

To change the X axis title, first:

      Click Format | Axis Titles | X Axis Title. Or simply right-click T on the graph and
choose Properties.

      Make the axis title Time (mseconds)

      Repeat for the Y axis so that the title for the Y axis is Amplitude.

To change the graph title and the legends.

      Click on the Text tool on the toolbar on the left and add the title Sound Waves.
Note that the title moves with the graph if you select the graph box. The title is part of
the layer. To move the title around, click outside the text box and then click the Text
box again and move it.

      Return to the data worksheet and click the Long Name entry (currently A2) on the
B(Y) column. Change this to High. Change the Long Name (currently A3) for the
C(Y) column into Low.

      Click on the Graph window and select Graph | Update Legend | Open Dialog. Click
OK on next box. The legend should be updated now.

13
You could have requested a line and scatter plot initially instead of asking just for a line plot
but you can also add symbols to your line plots at any stage of creating a graph.

      Right-click one of the lines on the graph to select it. Choose Change Plot to | Line
and Symbol.

      To change the symbols, go to the Plot Details window (via the Format | Plot menu
item). There are various details that you can change – for instance, the Symbol Type.
As an exercise, try changing the symbol types to a Solid Triangle Up and to a Hollow
Triangle Down.

Sometimes, you may have too many data points to view and you may decide you only want to
see a subset of them. You can downsample the data.

      Select Format | Layer and choose the Size/Speed tab. There should be a tick by
Worksheet Data, maximum points per curve. Change the default number to 14.

14
Changing the Printer Settings

      Undo the downsampling before doing the next set of instructions to print the graph.

      Select File | Print.

      Change the Printer Name to the desired print-queue/printer. Use an A4 printer such as
the Colour Laser printer. You can change any of the printer settings at this stage by
clicking the Properties button.

      Click on OK and your plot will be added to the queue.

      Before using Origin, you should normally make the desired printer to be your default
printer, because the page sizes available in Origin are dependent upon which printer
you have chosen. See Appendix 3 for more details.

If you want to check your print-out before printing, use File | Print Preview.

You can create a layout (similar to a slide in PowerPoint) in Origin via the File | New |
Layout menu item. You can then put both the graph and part of the worksheet on the layout
using the Layout menu. Objects on a layout can be rearranged using the Object Edit toolbar
(see View | Toolbars) and then the layout can be printed.

Although the Layout facilities in Version 8 of Origin have improved, we still do not consider
this topic any further in this workbook since most people would prefer to use PowerPoint or
Corel Draw to create a poster (another term for layout).

15
To save your Origin file containing both the graph and the worksheet:

      Select File | Save Project As. Navigate to where you want to save your file, e.g.
M:\originexs

      Enter a File name for the Origin Project (please call it Exercise1.opj) and click Save.

At this stage, it is worth while pausing to look at the structure of an Origin Project.

      Do not close the project down but look at the bottom and close any panels at the bottom
and on the left and the Results log window, if they are present. Click View | Project
Explorer and move the new window (on the left) so that it is docked at the bottom. The
Project Explorer should currently show that you have one open project which contains
one graph and one worksheet. You may need to expand the headers so that you see a
similar picture as the one below.

When you save a project, you save the whole structure of Origin child windows, including the
pages, layouts, scripts, matrices, worksheets, graphs, notes and Excel workbook windows.
You can also use Project Explorer to append a second project or to find windows within the
current project file

To export your graphs as pictures, for inclusion in another program,

      Click on the Graph window again and then select File | Export Graphs. Make sure
you have the Image tab clicked.

      Select the desired File Type, (there are a number of choices, including TIFF, GIF,
WMF, JPEG and Encapsulated PostScript).

      Enter a File name (for example, type Exercise1.emf if you have chosen Enhanced
Metafile for the File Type)

16
      For the Path, navigate to where you want to export your file, i.e. M:\originexs

      Click Preview (or AutoPreview). Then click OK unless you wish to explore the
Export Settings or change the Image Size.

Creating a Graph using Multi–lines
We are going to start a new page and we shall be using the default settings for multiple lines.

      Remove the old page by closing the Graph1 window. You are asked if you want to
delete or hide the window. Choose Delete.

      Click on the Worksheet window and change the Long Name for columns 2 and 3 back
to A1 and A2. Select all the columns so they are highlighted. A quick way of doing this
is to move to the top left white space, next to A(X) and, when the pointer change to a
diagonal arrow, click.

      Select Plot | Line and Symbol | Line + Symbol and a new window appears. If you
have received a Reminder Message, just click OK on the dialog box.

      Select the menu item Format | Plot to obtain the Plot Details box. It looks different!

The Group tab is now available since we have multiple plots on this layer. You can edit the
colours and line styles for each individual line, independently of the other lines on this layer.
Or you can edit the lines as a group, where the colours and line styles of each line depends on

17
the group schemes. The advantage of working in groups is that if you add a new layer to the
same page, the new graphs by default use the same group schemes as those in the first layer.

      Keeping the Dependent option ticked, go to the colours (under Details) on the same
row as Line Colour. Right-click and choose Load | Colour.List. Rainbow.OTH
option. You should have By One for the Increment for both Line Colour, Symbol
Type

      Change the Increment for the Symbol Interior to By One. Right-click on the symbol
interiors on the same line and choose Load | Symbol.Interior.OpenClose.OTH. The
PlotDetails box should look like the one below:

      Click OK

You can create your own incrementing schemes for line types, symbol types, patterns and for
colours but that process is not covered here in this workbook.

18
Zooming in One Part of the Graph
You can obtain the usual zoom in and out functions using the Zoom In and Zoom out keys on
the Graph toolbar at the top. But there is another type of zooming (called Enlarging). This
rescales the axis of the graph to show only the region of interest.

      Click the Scale In button on the Tools toolbar on the left. Drag a rectangle around
some of the graph as shown below.

The result is shown below. To return to the original, click Scale Out on the same toolbar.

Exiting Origin
To exit Origin:

      Select File | Exit. You will be prompted to save any modified files at this stage.

3   Exercise 2 Draw Error Bars
The aim of the first part of this exercise is to produce the following graph.

Plus Error

Datapoint

Minus Error

In this exercise, you will be proceeding through the following list of actions. Full instructions
will be given:

      Using the Import Wizard
      Creating the Error Columns in the Worksheet
      Creating an Error Bar Plot
      Changing the Error Bar Directions
      Trying the polynomial fitting routines
      Trying other curve–fitting routines
      Changing the graph size and position

20
Using the Import Wizard
     Start Origin. There should be a new datasheet called Book1.

Use a Text Editor such as WordPad (via Start | All Program | Accessories) to have a look at
the data file stored in v:\originexs\exercises\Exercise2.txt. The data items in this file are
separated by tab characters. Here is the file with extra comments:

1       Header 1            This is to show how Origin imports a file of data with multple

5       Long Name           T                Ymean                Ymin                  Ymax

6       Comments            (secs)           Average              Minimum               Maximum

8       Data                2                36                   34                    39

9       Data                4                39                   35                    42

10      Data                7                44                   39                    48

11      Data                10               52                   46                    57

12      Data                12               64                   58                    73

13      Data                14               81                   72                    87

     In Origin, click File | Import | Import Wizard. The following dialog box appears.

21
      First we want to import the file. Click the box with dots (marked with red arrow on
picture above) and the usual file browser box appears. Find the file stored in
v:\originexs\exercises\Exercise2.txt using Text(*.txt) for the File type and click Add
File then OK on the Open dialog box..

      Click Next on the Import Wizard – Source box and on next panel, click Next again.

As you can see, there is flexibility for importing headers, subheaders and variable names.

Origin has picked up that there are 4 header lines with descriptive text or blank lines at the top
of the file and that there are also 3 subheader lines. If you did want to change these numbers,
you can switch off Auto determines subheader line.

      In our file, we are not interested in Short Names. The Long Names is in the first line of
the subheaders (line 5 of the file). There are no Units in our file. We want to read lines
2 and 3 of the subheading (lines 6 and 7 of the file) as Comments. So we need to
change the Units to <None> and Comments so it reads lines 2 to 3. Make sure your
panel looks like the picture below before clicking Next.

      Click Next again. Origin has detected that the TAB character is the delimiter. Either
click Next twice more and then Finish or just click Finish

22
Creating the Error Columns in the Worksheet
We want to store the errors in two new columns. We also open a script window for executing
some commands.

      Select Column | Add New Columns and add two new columns. These are
automatically assumed to be storing Y values and have headings E(Y) and F(Y).

      Select column 5, then right-click the column header for E(Y) and choose Properties.
Give a name YMinus and change the Plot Designation to YError. Add a Comment if
wished. Click OK. Repeat for F(Y) but call it YPlus.

      Select Window | Script Window and a new window appears

The Script Window is useful for (amongst other things) simple calculations and for getting or
setting the value of a variable.

Enter the following two lines: (no spaces !)

col (E) = col (B) - col (C)

col (F) = col (D) - col (B)

Notice that when you press the Enter key at the end of each line, the line is executed. When
you have checked the values in the two columns are correct, close the script window.

23
Creating an Error Bar Plot
Since we are not intending to plot Ymin or Ymax, you have to use the Ctrl Key to select
columns A(X), B(Y), E(yEr+-) and F(yEr+-) on the worksheet. Leave the Ymin and Ymax
columns unselected.

     Select the menu item Plot | Symbol | YError. Select the legend and drag it slightly.

Notice that the Long Names have been used to label the axes and for the legend.

Changing the Error Bar Directions
     To change the directions of the error bars, go to the Plots Details window (via Format |
Plot). On the left hand side, select the set for Yplus(yEr). On the right hand side for the
Direction, remove the tick for the Minus box.

24
      Remove the Plus direction for the Yminus(yEr) dataset and click OK.

In this picture, the bars are given different colours just to emphasise Plus and Minus errors!

Plus Error

Datapoint

Minus Error

Checkpoint 1
If you have not obtained the picture above (don’t worry about different colours!), then you can
either load the file EX2CH1.opj or you can start from scratch

      Click on the Text tool on the toolbar down the left hand side. Click on the page where
you want the title and type Y-Mean & Error Levels.

25
Adding Another Graph to the Window
We want to have two graphs on the same page, one showing the Error Bars and the other
showing a line. We already have done one of these. We are going to scrap this graph but still
keep the worksheet. Origin has a neat way of adding two graphs to the same page.

      Ensure that the graph window is current and close the window. You will be asked if
you want to hide or delete the window. Choose Delete. Deselect the columns on the
worksheet by clicking outside the columns.

      Select the menu item Plot | Multi-Curve | Vertical 2 Panel. The new dialog box may
be a little confusing to begin with! At the bottom, there are two layers. If you cannot
see these, click the blue symbol in bottom right of dialog box. The up arrows mean
‘Hide’ and the down ones mean ‘Show’ Remember a layer holds one set of axes.
Layer1 is to hold the line plot and Layer2 is to hold the Error Bars.

       Layer 1 should be highlighted. Click Line from the list of Plot Type and then put a
tick in the X box for the Long name T and a tick in the Y box for Ymean. Then click

      Now select Layer2 on the bottom and then choose Scatter from the list of Plot Types.
Put a tick in the X box for T, a tick in the Y box for Ymean, a tick in the YError box
for Yplus and a tick in the YError box for Yminus. Click Add

      Click OK. The graphs look a bit squashed so go to File | Page Setup and change to
Portrait Orientation.

      Select the figure 2 (this is for Layer 2) in the top left of the Graph window and then
change the Error Bar directions.

26
You should be presented with a picture showing two graphs similar to the one below.

Checkpoint 2
If you have not obtained the picture above, then you can either load the file EX2CH2.opj or
you can start from scratch.

Trying the Polynomial Fitting Routines
Origin has a library of over 100 built–in equations which can be used as curve fitting
functions. We now try a least-squares fit of the data to a polynomial of order 3.

mode (use File | Page Setup).

       To find a linear fit for Y-mean, click Analysis | Fitting | Linear Fit | Open Dialog

27
      To delete the linear fit, click Format | Layer and delete the fitting line from the layer.
Update the legend – try moving graph around to remove any unwanted text.

      To find a polynomial fit for Y-mean, click Analysis | Fitting | Polynomial Fit. Try an
order of 2 first and click OK. Then try order 3. You should now have two red curves.
Delete the polynomial of order 2 curve (use Format | Plot to delete unwanted curves),
leaving the polynomial fit for order 3. Reset the Legend (Graph | New Legend).

Polynomial Regression for Ymean: Y = Intercept + B1*X + B2*X^2 + B3*X^3

Intercept         30.38947           B1       3.6168

B2                -0.493             B3       0.03526

with a value for Adjusted R-Square of                   0.99909

Trying Other Curve–Fitting Routines
On the Analysis | Fitting menu, there are a number of choices for the fitting function. In many
cases, you just choose the fitting function and you do not have to input any parameters.

The Nonlinear Curve Fit option on the menu above is for the more advanced non-linear least
squares fitting. With this, you can build up a fitting function. You can using Origin scripts or
these facilities, then have a look at the Origin User Guide or the online help pages.

28
      Delete the old Polynomial Fit curve (use Format | Plot to delete unwanted curves),
leaving the original line. Reset the Legend (Graph | New Legend).

      Click Analysis | Fitting | Nonlinear Curve Fit or one of the other fitting functions.
Choose Rational for the Category and Reciprocal for the Function. Click Fit. A
window appears which shows the fitting function, the coefficients and the statistics.

Changing the Graph Size and Position
You may need to fix the size and position of a graph.

      Double-click the background of the graph which is on Layer 1. This is a different way
of obtaining the Plot Details window.

      Click the Size / Speed tab and switch the Units to mms. Give values 40 for Left, 220
for Width, 20 for Top and 150 for Height.

      Click File | Exit and leave Origin

29
4   Exercise 3 Draw a 3D Mesh Plot
The aim of this exercise is to produce the following mesh plot.

In this exercise, you will be proceeding through the following list of actions. Full instructions
will be given:

      Interpolating the data
      Changing the Colour Scheme
      Changing the point of view

Interpolating the Data
      Start Origin.

      Import the file v:\originexs\exercises\Exercise3.txt (use Single Ascii) and keep the
worksheet window active. Select then right-click the C(Y) column. Click Set as | Z

The data consists of a set of (x,y,z) triplets and is not on a regular grid. It is advised to
interpolate the data into a regular grid, before drawing a 3D mesh since there is then more
control over the smoothing.

Origin has a window type called a matrix window in which a single two dimensional data set
(Z) is displayed in rows and columns. This is used to store a regular grid.

30
      Keep the Z column selected. Click Worksheet | Convert to Matrix | XYZ Gridding

Open the Gridding Setting s section by clicking the little plus sign. There are five gridding
methods and we are going to try several of these. First try Random Renka Cline for the
Gridding Method and Parameters, type 7 for both Rows and Columns (remove the ticks by
these!) and ask for 3D Colour Map Surface for the Preview Map Type. Also click the
Preview Result tab. The Preview button appears then on the bottom.

Next try Random Kriging Correlation for the Gridding Method. Keep the grid 7 rows by 7
columns and keep the other parameters as suggested by Origin. This time, click OK

A new window appears – this stores the interpolation results in a7 by 7 matrix.

      Keep the Matrix window as the current window and click Plot | 3D Surface | Colour
Map Surface click OK

This is not a suitable place to discuss the merits of all the different smoothing algorithms for
this particular set of data and the effects of changing the parameters. However, as you have

31
probably already realised, it is important that you take care in choosing a method and in
choosing particular values for the other parameters!

Checkpoint 1
If you have not obtained the picture on previous page, then you can either load the file
EX3CH1.JNB or you can start from scratch.

      Reselect the Graph window and click Graph | Plot Setup. There should be three parts
to the window – if there are not, then click the blue symbols on the right side of the
dialog box.

       Select Layer1 in the bottom third of the dialog window, if this is not already selected.
We want to add a graph to that layer, one showing the original points. In the top section
click Worksheets in Project instead of Matrices and then click Exercise 3. For the
Plot Type (in the middle) choose 3D Line.

       In the middle, you can specify what columns are to be X,Y,Z. Click the X box on the
row which has A for the Column, the Y box for B and the Z box for C. Click Add.

      At the bottom of the dialog box, click Apply then click OK

32
Changing the Colour Scheme
   Select Format | Plot to obtain the Plot Details dialog.box. On the left hand side of this
dialog box, make sure that the surface not the 3d line has been selected. The Color
Map tab should then be selected.

   Click the Fill header and ask for Limited Mixing. Change the From colour to Olive and
the To colour to Wine. You can change the contour levels on the Color Map panel, if
you wish.

   Click the Surface tab and click Use Colour Map instead of the Single colour. Also
click the Surfaces/Projections tab and add ticks for Bottom Contour for both Fill and
Contour lines. Click Apply to see the changes.

   Next, click the plus sign by the Exercise3 graph on the left hand side. Click Original
(these mean the original points) and then change the Symbol into a solid red circle size
8 and remove the Drop Lines.

   Click Apply and OK to apply changes.

   To change the backplanes, click Format | Layer and click the Planes tab. Switch off
all three planes. You can switch off the axes and axis titles (look at the Display tab)

Changing the Point of View
   You may have noticed that there is a new toolbar opened near the top. This is the 3D
Rotation toolbar. At the right of this toolbar, choose 20 for the 3D Rotation Angle.

   Try clicking the Rotate Counter-clockwise twice then the Tilt Down twice. Then try
the Tilt Up about 4 or 5 times. You can see from the rotations how far the original data
points are from the surface.

   If you want, you can choose Reset Rotation to return to the default position. As an
exercise, see if you can reproduce the picture at the start of this exercise!

33
5   Exercise 4 Draw Curve of 2D
Function
This exercise is to draw a 2D curve which describes the following function:

y = cos ( m*x ) * sin (n*x)

where m and n are parameters and x has values between 0 and 720 degrees.

For the initial picture shown here, m = 8 and n = 1. There are other interesting curves, when
we vary m and n.

Origin has a Function window in which you can type a function and it automatically plots the
function without your having to calculate the X and Y values. You can specify a range for X
and how many points are to be on the range. You should try to have a reasonably large number
for the sample points.

In this example, we have 145 sample points ranging from 0 to 720.

In this exercise, you will be proceeding through the following list of actions:

      Using The Function Window

      Changing the parameters

34
Using the Function Window
     If you have not left Origin, then close the old Project and start a new Project.

     To change the trigonometric units to degrees, click Tools | Options. Click the tab for
Numeric Format and choose Degree. Unless you definitely prefer to keep Radian for
options. Otherwise you will see peculiar results if you leave Origin and return to doing
this example!

     Click File | New | Function and click OK. The Plot Details window appears.

     In the blank area next to F1(X)=, you can type:

cos(2*x) * sin(2*x)

The Plot Details window should look like the following picture. Notice that the Auto X
Range has been switched off and values of 0 and 720 have been inserted for the start and end
of range. The number of Total Points is 145. Click OK

     The plot window appears. You may need to click Rescale on the Function window to
obtain the picture as shown below.

35
      First, remove the legend (select then right-click and choose Delete).

      Double-click the X axis. Click the Scale tab and change the From value to 0 and the
To value to 720 and make the Increment 80.

      Next click the Title & Format tab and remove the axis title. Ask for Major Ticks to be
Out and the Minor ticks to be None. Next remove the gridlines by clicking the
GridLines tab and switch off both Major and Minor Grids. Do not click OK yet.

      Still on the dialog box for Axes, click Title and Format and click on the icon for the
Left axis. Remove the axis title, remove the gridlines, change the scale to -1,1,
increement to 0.2 and change the ticks. Click OK. If you still have a line at Y=0, then
double-click the X axis, click the Grid Lines tab and remove the tick in the Additional
Lines section..

Checkpoint 1
If you have not obtained the picture above, then you can either load the file EX4CH1.JNB or
you can start from scratch. Change to Degree (Tools | Options | Numeric Format) if
necessary.

Changing the Parameters
      With the Function window current, go to Format | Plot

      Change the equation so that it now reads:

F1(x)= cos(8*x)*sin(1*x)

You should obtain a picture similar to the one shown at the front of this exercise. Now change

36
Try plotting the function y = cos(4*x)*cos(8*x)*sin(0.5*x) instead .

37
6   Exercise 5 Draw Multiple Axes Plot
This exercise is to draw the following. There are 3 lines to be plotted using different scales:

There are many occasions when one wants to plot multiple datasets that have different orders
of magnitude and hence one has420 to use axes with different scales. In this example, we have
three plots, each of which has one line. We create three Y axes and each one of these axes are
assigned to a different layer.

When a new plot is added to a graph, it is automatically assigned to the Y axis which is on the
left of the graph. This axis adjusts its scales (if necessary) to accommodate the new dataset. If
there is already a dataset assigned to that axis and if the datasets have different orders of
magnitude, then one of the datasets may possibly disappear or become a straight horizontal
line.

In this exercise, you will be proceeding through the following list of actions:

      Adding data to the worksheet
      Creating the plots
      Changing the scales on the axes.
      Tidying up the graph

38

      Add two new columns to the worksheet (via Column | Add New Column) Type the
following data into the worksheet. Keep Column B blank.

      Use Window | Script Window to calculate the data for the second column of data. Add
the following statements: (The semi-colon is a statement separator).

temp = col ( D ) ; col ( B ) = ln ( temp )

and press the ENTER key. The resultant worksheet should look like this:

If we put all 3 lines into one layer with one pair of axes, one line would become horizontal
since the range on the Y axis is so large. Instead, we add more layers and separate Y axes.

Creating the Plots
      Create a graph with a line plot using the data in columns A and B. Remove the legend
for the moment – we shall sort that out later.

39
      Select the menu item Graph | New Layer (Axes) | Right Y (Linked, X Scale &
Dimension). A new axis appears in the Graph window. Notice that you have a new
layer (see 2 in top left of the Graph window).

      Return to the worksheet and just select columns A and C only (use CTRL key to select
columns). Make the Graph window current, keep layer 2 as the current layer and select
Graph | Add Plot to Layer | Line.

      A new line should be added and the axis on the right should show a different scale.

      Repeat the last three steps to add a new line for columns A and D. You can select the
axis on the right and move it using the horizontal right arrow key.

Checkpoint 1
If you have not obtained the picture below, then you can either load the file EX5CH1.opj or
you can start from scratch.

To show that each layer has one line, click Format | Plot to obtain the Plot Details dialog.
Open up the Layers. Each layer has one line. In theory, it is possible to have many linked
layers, each containing one or more lines or symbol sets but, in practice, of course, the
resultant graph would be very confusing! Close down the Plot Details dialog box.

NB There was a new facility in version 8.1 in which you could have just selected all four
columns and asked for Plot | Multi-curve | Multiple Y Axes. However, we decided to keep
the example as it is since it helps to understand the principle of adding new layers better.

40
Changing the Scales on the Axes
Origin chooses a range larger than required for all the axes. We want to tidy up the axis scales.

      Double–click the Y axis on the left. If you hit the actual axis, the dialog box opens with
the Scale tab showing but if you hit the labels, the Tick Labels tab is showing. Notice
that it picks up that you are working on Layer 1. We want the Scale tab showing.

When making the following changes, you can use Apply or OK to see the effects on the graph.
If you use OK, then you may have to reopen the Axis dialog box by double–clicking an axis.

      Change the range from 8.4 to 10.1. The increment is 0.34. If you click Apply, you will
see that the axis still looks untidy.

      Still with the Scale tab showing, look at the Rescale options and choose Fixed from.
Give a value of 8.4 for the First Tick.

      Click OK. For the second Y axis, change the range so that it is from 420 to 2920. the
increment value is 500 and the first tick is at 420. Click OK.

      For the third axis, repeat the process using a range from 4200 to 24200. We want an
Increment value of 4000 and the first tick is at 4200. Click OK .

      Double-click the X axis. Change the range from 10 to 50. Click OK to see the changes.

Checkpoint 2
If you have not obtained the picture below, then either load the file EX5CH2.JNB and start
here or you could load the file EX5CH1.JNB and retrace the steps from Checkpoint 1.

41
Tidying up the Graph
    First we need to sort out the legends. Go to the menu item Format | Page and choose
the Legends/Titles tab. Switch on the option Include Data Plots from all Layers

    As an exercise, try to reproduce the picture below, without adding new plots or deleting
old ones. Note that the sets containing a line with connecting symbol and
corresponding axis header are drawn in different colours. The lines are thickened and
the axis headers are done in bold text. To change the control of an axis title, right–click
it and choose Label control. Attach it to the Page rather than Label and Scales.

42
7   Exercise 6 The Histogram Wizard
This exercise shows how to create a histogram with different bucket sizes.

In this exercise, you will be proceeding through the following list of actions:

      Importing data to the worksheet
      Using the Histogram Wizard
      Changing the bucket sizes
      Creating a Regression Line and Confidence Lines.
      Finding the Prediction lines and Correlation Coefficient

Importing Data to the Worksheet
      Start Origin. Import the data file v:\originexs\exercises\exercise6.txt using File | Import
| Single Ascii There are two columns giving the age and cholesterol level of 100
people. Your worksheet should look like the one shown below (after you have adjusted
the column width!).

Using the Histogram Wizard
A histogram for the Ages column only is our first objective.

43
      First, we want to change the Age column so it is a Y column not X. Right-click on the
A(X) column and choose Set As | Y. Keep that column selected.

      Select Plot | Statistics | Histogram

Changing the Bucket Sizes
Currently the Bucket size is 5. We want to change this to 10 and to change the Start and End
points to 15 and 75 so that the centres of the histogram bars are at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70.

      On the graph window, right-click on the histogram itself and choose Plot Details.

      Pick the Data tab and switch off Automatic Binning. Put 10 for the Bin Size, 15 for
the Begin and 75 for the End. Click OK

      You may need to click Graph | Rescale to Show All

Checkpoint 1
If you have not obtained the picture below, then you can either load the file EX6CH1.JNB or
you can start from scratch.

44
As an exercise, see if you can reproduce the following picture, using the Plot Details dialog
and other dialog boxes.

Creating a Regression Line & Confidence Lines
      To create a scatter plot of Age & Cholesterol, right-click the Age heading on the
worksheet and click Set As | X. Then select both columns and click Plot | Symbol |
Scatter.

      Remove the legend and change the axis scales.

      Click Analysis | Fitting | Polynomial Fit. Use the Open Dialog as usual! and change
the Polynomial Order from 2 to 1. Click OK at the bottom. A red line appears – this is
the regression line. (Up to you about seeing the Report Sheet or not).

45
      Undo and repeat but this time open the Fitted Curves Plot dialog (see above) and click
Confidence Bands. Scroll down and note that the confidence levels are 95%. Click
OK. This time two green lines appear. Remove the table.

Confidence intervals describe the range where the regression line will appear a percentage of
time for repeated measurements. In other words, we are 95% confident that in another sample
of the same size the regression line will be between the two confidence curves.

46
Finding Prediction Intervals and Correlation
Coefficient
Prediction intervals describe the range where the data will appear a percentage of time for
repeated measurements.

      Undo and repeat the Fit Polynomial operation but switch on Prediction Bands and
click OK. The Prediction Bands are just under the Confidence Bands on the same panel
as before

      Does this data provide evidence of a correlation between Age and Cholesterol? To
show this, find the Table that has been created. This appears on the Graph Window but
you might have deleted this. If you have, then you can just undo the deletion or repeat
the instructions! The correlation coefficient is shown on the list of results as Adj R
square.

R ² = 0.7194

This shows it is a fair prediction to say that there is a dependency relationship between Age
and Cholesterol.

47
Optional Exercise
Try to reproduce the following picture. The data is in a file called vib.txt stored in
v:\originexs\exercises. The first column stores the X values. The column e0 represents the Y
values for the graph on the left and the column e5 represents the Y values for the graph on the
right.

Hints:

        Use Import | Single Ascii when importing the file.

        First, create graph on left which is a line plot of x vs e0

        Use log10 scaling (instead of linear) for axes and change scaling on axes.

        Add grid lines (both major and minor), remove legend, change title.

        Thicken axes and plot.

        Copy and paste graph then move second graph to the right. Check that there are now
two layers and that Layer 2 is current.

        Click Graph | Plot Setup. The second graph should be selected. Change the value for
Y for that graph to variable e5 instead of e0 and click Replace. You may need to alter
the axis scales again.

Appendix 2 Local Setup of Origin
To install Origin:

      Logon to the Managed Windows Service (MWS).

      Select Start on the Taskbar. Choose All Programs | Install University Applications
then click Graphics in the list of categories

      Click on Origin 8.5 SR1. You should not need to reboot.

Note that a working directory called origin8.5 is created on your M: drive. By default, Origin
templates, themes, filters etc are stored in that directory.

If you have used Origin before using version 8.5, you may like to tidy up your M: drive since
there may be old Origin directories stored there. Transfer any project files that you have
created to M:\orogin85\; also any special themes or templates etc.

To run Origin, you can:

      Click Start on the taskbar at the bottom and then click All Programs. Click OriginLab
| Origin 8.5 | OriginPro 8.5.

Appendix 3 Printing from Origin
Origin is integrated with Windows. The new version of Origin does now allow you to choose a
paper size other than the ones associated with the currently selected printer. For example, if
your current default printer is the A4 laser printer, then you are still allowed to choose A3 or
A2 or larger sizes.

In Origin, you should change the paper size at the start which is the desired output for your
chosen printer.

      When a graph or chart is first created, you should select File | Page Setup and select a
page size. This step should be done at this stage since it is possible that, after making
alterations and then choosing a new paper size or orientation, the layout of the
presentation will be spoilt.

      To obtain a hardcopy, select File | Print Choose a printer first.

      You should check that the correct orientation and paper size have been set for your
chosen printer by selecting Properties.
