Click on a thumbnail plot in your search results to add it to the GraphWise workbench. As you search and find other data you can add those plots to the workbench with a simple click. GraphWise will automatically adjust the axis of the graph for different data types and, if needed, will add up to three axis representing different scales to help you better visualize your information.

You can change the title, what data points and graph components to display, and you can add watermarks and change color themes.
