How about your build your own?
With cost heavy on a start-up company's heart, I've decided to build my own log viewer while using a free program for scatter plots and histograms. In about 4 days I had a complete log viewer that would read an LAS file, create tracks, display curves and perform some very nice color fills based on settings in an XML file. As an extra challenge I decided to not use Matplotlib. This is because I wanted more control on the theme and display style.
Here was my pre-build checklist:
1) Use XML format for log templates
2) Read LAS files
3) Use Python and minimal libraries
4) Do not use Matplotlib
5) Display information on each curve in a header
6) Scroll up and down log
7) HTML colors for curves
8) Multiple scales per track
9) Fill to the right or left
10) Logarithmic track
Big list but when you spell it out first then the solutions start pilling in pretty quickly. More posts to come on how to build your own Log Viewer.
