I am searching for an easy to use software for OS X that is capable of the following:
- data analysis (load/process/manipulate data) via scripting
- plotting the data
- configuring the plot directly (not via script) to produce publication ready figures (line properties, ticks and all that stuff)
- basic vector drawing capabilities like squares/ovals/arrows etc. with fillings, borders etc.
- Latex integration for all text appearing
Is there a program that is capable of this?
Background: When it comes to a publication within the scientific community, in several research fields, plots of data are substantial. If one additionally wants to plot e.g. a sketch of a sample, several programs are needed to do so (e.g. Matlab to create a crappy plot, CorelDraw to make it nice and/or add other stuff like a sketch of your experimental setup). On the other hand, programming languages that can do all I am asking are often quite difficult to use or at least need some time to get familiar with.
