The Scientific Graphics Toolkit (SGT), a library of java graphics classes, facilitates the development of platform independent, Java applications and web applets to produce highly interactive, flexible, publication quality, object-oriented graphics of scientific data. Features include user settable or automatically scaled axes, sophisticated, automatically self-scaling time axes, mouse-movable objects (labels, line keys, icons), customizable objects, automatic generation of legends to explain the data being displayed and contour plots.

We have made this powerful graphics toolkit significantly more accessible to a far wider community of non-expert users by creating easy-to-use SGT JavaBeans. SGT JavaBeans is easier for an expert programmer to utilize, and moreover, gives beginner and intermediate Java developers access to these powerful scientific graphics in their Java applets, applications, and servlets, without the steep learning-curve required to use SGT directly.
