Tech brief: Universal research data
OriginLab Corp. of Northampton, Mass., recently put out a free Origin Viewer so research agencies can more easily share Origin project files. The company's graphing and data analysis software is used by NASA, the Food and Drug Administration, the Naval Research Laboratory and several labs in the Energy De-partment. Company officials liken the Origin Viewer to Adobe's Acrobat Reader. Research-ers who do not currently use Origin can still access data in those files. To download the Origin Viewer, go to GCN.com and enter 539 in the GCN.com/box.
