Description scls19fr 2004-05-24 14:05:48 UTC

I write you because I think that
3d-plots for scientists are missing.

For example

How can I trace ... ?

(helicoidal mouvement around z axis)
It's a ***** 3d parametric plot *****.

How can I trace ... ?
**** a surface in 3d *****
for example
is a spherical surface with a radius R=1

wrong component, I changed it to Chart and re-assigned it.

Just an idea: is it possible to "recycle" gnuplot-code for these functions? In
the long term, it would be great if even the entire functionality of gnuplot
could be available in OOo.
Comment 5 scls19fr 2004-11-14 11:17:37 UTC

I agree with you but I think there is a problem with GNUPlot licence.
GNUPlot licence is neither GPL, neither LGPL.

OOo must use a "LGPL like" license in order to allow commercials applications
such as StarOffice.
So, an idea could be to make an independant application "OOoPlot"  inspired from
This application should be more objet oriented than GNUPlot to easily provide an
interface to OOo Calc.
OOoPlot could also provide scripting abilities for drawing and for ploting.
OOoPlot will support multiple layer

myplot = new plot()
mylayer = new myplot.layer()

All this features will be available for OOo Calc but also as a stand alone app.

Implementation of a surface chart is already targeted within Issue 29012.
The general idea of having functions instead of ranges for series values is
already filed in Issue 13079. So I set this to duplicate.
