Release date: 5 Septemer, 2016
This is a major new release of iNZight, so many things have changed.
We hope you like them!
Here's just a few of the major new features to iNZight.
- Example data sets available from the File menu
- Play time can now be stopped, and the interval adjusted
- Switch variables with the one below by clicking the "down" arrow to the right of the variable box
- Maps Module - visualise geographical data:
- Coordinates: if your data set includes GPS coordinates for each observation,
iNZight will let you plot them on a map.
- Countries: if observations have country names associated with them,
you can colour countries on a map by another variable.
Try this out with the Gapminder data set included in Example Data!
- Dual Window mode - if you've used VIT, then this will be familiar to you. From File > Preferences,
you can choose to have a separate window for graphs (as opposed to the built-in one).
We can't list everything here, but some of the important ones are listed below.
- Plot toolbar has new icons
- Add to Plot window completely redesigned to make plot modification easier
- Resize points has been adjusted to resize the area proportional to the value.
Also added an "emphasize" option, which scales sizes linearly.
- COLOUR: new, better palettes have been introduced, including viridis,
which are colourblind friendly.
- Multiple Response has been overhauled to be more intuitive and fit in with the rest of iNZight.
- (temporary) Just a quick workaround for analysing tables in iNZight: Dataset > Expand Table
Given the magnitude of changes, there's little point mentioning the minor ones and bug fixes!
3.0.1 - 23/09/2016
- Fix up labels and icons so plot toolbar and plot menu match
- Fix a bug where two-level bar plots failed to draw
- Fix a bug where empty levels in two-way bar plots failed to draw
- Fix locator for dot plots
- Fix the updates available checker
3.0.2 - 04/10/2016
- Add "Updates Available" text back to the title (when they're available, of course!)
3.0.3 - 12/10/2016
- Bug fix: can now change colours of histograms
Release date: 08 November, 2015
- specify colours for dotplots and scatterplots from the Add to Plot > Code more variables screen.
Patch 2.5.1 - 16/11/2015
- correct the names and URLs in the 'Help > User Guides' menu
- fix bug that occurs when 'Colour by' variable has only one unique value
Release date: 12 October, 2015
- Include FPC (finite population corrections) in survey designs
- Replace the drag-drop boxes for variabes with drop-down
boxes for an alternative method of variable
selection. Drag-and-drop functionality has been retained.
- Fix the enabling/disabling of buttons when survey designs
- When closing the survey design window, they specified design
is now checked for validity before saving the design.
- Fix bug in the Multiple Response module that gave an
"inverse" error message.
- Various other small fixes throughout iNZight and other
dependency pacakges. See their change logs for details.
Patch 2.4.1 - 21/10/2015
- Remove dependency on
RODBC package; this causes
issues on Mac attempting to manually install.
PATCH 2.4.2 - 28/10/2015
- Add option to display labels internally on numeric x factor
- Fix from iNZightPlots for Get Summary (
n.missing now correct)
Patch 2.4.3 - 02/11/2015
- Improve smoothness of dotplot transitions by only redrawing
when the scaling has changed.
Release date: 4 August, 2015
- SURVEY DESIGNS: iNZight can now handle survey designs
(currently Strata, 2-stage (nesting) clustering, and a weighting
variable. Plots take account of this structure and inference that
displays (currently only trend lines on bivariate plots) use
functions from the
survey packages and thus incorporate weights.
- Adjust the axis limits from the Add to Plot menu.
- Adjust the number of bars displayed on a bar plot from the
Add to Plot menu.
- the plot tool bar has been added to the Menubar at the top
of the page. This allows users to work in a dual-window mode
(with a narrow iNZight interface and a separate plotting window)
and still be able to access plot functions.
- fixes to a few issues occuring in dotplots
- display an error if Add to Plot is called without any
variables having been selected
Release date: 16 June, 2015
- users can specify a window size in File > Preferences
- Links to the User Guides found on our website have been
added, including help buttons in the Add To Plot and Inference
- LOCATE functionality now included for dot plots. Also fixes
several bugs in the previous update for locating points in
- the "Row Operations" menu has been renamed "Data"
Patch 2.2.0-1 - 1/07/2015
- iNZightPlots package: fix colour of segmented bar plots to
match the legend
Patch 2.2.0-2 - 27/7/2015
- Fix mapping of confidence intervals (instead of comparison
intervals) to Year 12 intervals in dot plots.
Release date: 25 May, 2015
- New hexagonal binning plot available to large samples
- Live updating sliders for the "Add to Plot" panel, which is
now embedded into the main window rather than creating an
additional pop-up window
- The "Add to Plot", "Remove Additions" and
"Inference Information" windows have been integrated into the main
window with the aim of making the interface cleaner and easier to
- When colouring points by a numeric variable, a continuous colour
range is used rather than a discrete one.
- The plotting package has been rewritten to accomodate survey
designs (this will be integrated with iNZight itself at a later
date). However, the plots have been modified to be cleaner and far
more efficient. Additionally, the algorithms used for the
inference information have been updated. For more information on
this, see the iNZightPlots change log.
- The "Get Summary" and "Get Inference" outputs have been
redesigned to hopefully give a more intuitive, cleaner
presentation of the information.
- From dot plots and histograms, the comparison (and confidence)
interval values can be read from the graph by clicking 'Get Values'
in the 'Inference Information' panel. This includes the Year 12 intervals
applied to medians.
- LOCATOR: functionality for scatterplots vastly improved,
allowing selection of related points, retaining points over
multiple graphcs, and selecting points by a variable.
(similar upgrades for dot plots coming in v2.2)
- the number of missing values is now displayed on the plot,
broken down by variable
- the list of options in the 'Add to Plot' window are now in a drop
down menu, rather than radio buttons, to save space

names in the variable view

- A new Help tab that includes Licence information, and a link
to the FAQ and Support pages
- In the "Remove Additions" window, "Remove segmentation" has
been renamed to "Remove colour by" for bar plots, and
"Restore default labels" is added to remove customised plot
- Removes development text from Load Data window
- Fixes a bug in the Locate Points feature when the scales are
- Scroll bars added to Reorder Levels window
- The menu has been moved above the plot tabs, so it no longer

id or any other
variable. This feature works for both dot plots and scatter plots.

Rename Levels and
Rename factor levels windows.
- Reorder levels now works as expected, including sort by
- Bug where the iNZight window closes even if a user clicks
