Free, and easy to use, Past has several hundred modules for data analysis and plotting with a focus on natural sciences.

What’s New

Version 4.15

Many small improvements and bug fixes - see the Past homepage. Reverted to OpenGL for nicer graphics than ver. 4.14. This is hopefully the last version running in Intel mode on ARM processors.

Still Worth It!

I have been using PAST for years to do stats analysis (not just for paleontology). It still works great. I personally find it very inutitive for student-use, especially among undergrads who are taking their first data analysis/stats course in science. I really like the improved graphics. Only regret is that they phased out the cladistic tree builder.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much! And I am happy to inform you that the cladistics module is back, in the Multivariate->Clustering menu!

Now working great in Sonoma.

I have used this for years and it continues to get better and better. This latest update brings us up to par with Windows users. It is really the go to app for many stats in the Earth Sciences and Paleo. Keep up the great work!!!

Most userfriendly grapher ever.

I use it for audio analysis, and for visualisation/statistics of different electronic components characteristics.
It would be a nightmare to do that with gnuplot or python scripting.
Amazing app!
