This is a TCl/Tk package for getting data out of scientific plots (or from any other plot for that matter).
DataCapture was born out of frustration, and after much procrastination. Every time I had to get numerical values of a graph from a journal or a conference paper, I had to painstakingly approximate data points from the graph as best I could. Every time the points would come out inaccurate and a rather poor reproduction of the actual data. I wanted to write a program that would automate this task, and do a much better job at that. But then, that was three years ago. Finally its done. Its not the best thing that I have created, but certainly, one of the most useful. Its written in TCl/Tk and is a very small and uncomplicated aplication. Something that you can easily incorporate into your own applications easily.
