Scientific Plotting Software for OS X

This is a list of general data plotting packages and some with analysis capabilities as well. The listing has "MSRP". Academic, Student, Government, Volume pricing is perhaps lower! These are single node, perpetual license. Many of the moderate level have "student" editions for $100. These are for base packages without "addons". The grouping of the pricing is somewhat interesting!

Sorted by price and subsorted by alphabet.
Free = $0, Most available through Fink
