Curves capable of being expressed as an equation are often available in the Equation Plotter tool. As with the Graph Digitizer, the user can select points on the curve to digitize. Further, one may enter an X coordinate (the Add Point button) and the tool will calculate the corresponding Y coordinate.
The Equation Plotter is generally useful to prior art searchers because of the Add Point function. This saves time by preventing users from performing the calculation manually, and provides a visualization of a specific data point along the graph.
