Pynomo (http://www.pynomo.org) draws nicer nomograms than this, but I needed something to quickly produce nomograms in R so I could see how my fitted equations work. It turned out to be relatively easy to get something basic up.GBhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01100913350264083875noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1364629727248557844.post-16511326341501604562010-03-12T14:33:54.279+11:002010-03-12T14:33:54.279+11:00There is an interesting article on nomography in m...There is an interesting article on nomography in my old 1957 Encyclopedia Britannica, including a simple one for the 3 sides of a right triangle.<br /><br />What does yours here do?Peterhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04875668909485036128noreply@blogger.com
