BESA Plot is highly versatile tool for creating customized plots of averaged data, written by Patrick Berg. It runs on Windows, MAC OS and Linux.

Implemented features include the following:

  • Plots are controlled by ASCII script files which can be edited within BESA Plot or with your own text editor (e.g. TextPad, Notepad). Short tutorials with easy steps teach you how to user BESA Plot: Learn how to write (or click-and-choose) commands in the control file
  • Draw data curves from selected channels in various colors and line styles
  • Group commands allow you to draw a set of curves in a topographic distribution extremely simply and efficiently
  • Draw amplitude and Laplacian (CSD) maps, either as contours, or solid colors. Solid color maps use two colors (usually red, blue) with varying intensities. Maps can be drawn from 6 viewpoints: top, bottom, left, right, front, back
  • Scales (x-axis, amplitude, map color scale)
  • Labels (text)
  • Curve types (i.e. a straight line with selected line style and color, combined with a label)
  • It is possible to specify the location, line style and color on the screen for each object
  • Data from several different files can be presented in one plot. BESA fsg: data from different segments/epochs can be presented in one plot
  • On-screen editing: drag objects to new locations. A click on an object node high-lights the respective command and enables editing. A right-click dropdown menu allows more detailed editing.
  • High-resolution printing
  • Images can be saved in TIFF, JPEG, png, Windows Bitmap (bmp) formats, using either the current window resolution, or a different (e.g. much higher) predefined resolution
  • File formats supported: BESA format files (*.avr, *.fsg, *.mul, *.swf, *.generic), Matlab files (*.dat), and ASCII files containing either vectorized or multiplexed data
