GoCIE - CIE Plot Utility


  1. Choose a required coordinate system (EBU, NTSC, PAL-SECAM & SMPTE).

  2. Add or Modify CIE points on a mouse click

  3. Function for spectrum to CIE-1931 coordinates conversion to insert point directly from spectrum.

  4. Fully customizable CIE points by legend, symbol and color

  5. Quick change of color schemes for plotting.

  6. Copy or Save plots as required

  7. Save plots in different sizes and different formats (JPG, EMF, BMP, etc.).

Either select the option “Add CIE Point” from the Tools drop down menu or from the right click context menu and follow the instructions given in the popup window.

Select the “Modify CIE Point” option from the Tools dropdown menu of from the right click context menu and use the options given in the popup window to modify the appearance of the existing CIE point. You can change the CIE values, plot style and label.

This could be possibly due to several reasons. The data import routine is equipped to handle text files (*.txt) containing wavelength, absorbance data separated either by a space (“ ”) or a comma (“,”). Each set of point must be in separate lines as illustrated below:
350, 0.1
351, 0.1
352, 0.1

Open the sample data files supplied along with the software to figure out the problem in your file. If you cannot solve the problem then contact the support for assistance with your data file.

Demo version is having all most all the options available with the registered version except for the facility to save and recall the CIE plot. By registering you will also get notifications about updates and bug fixes whenever they are available. For registering e-mail us. We will inform you further details.
