Fathom Dynamic Data Software

New upgrades include more than 30 one-minute movies that show basic skills, as well as the ability to understand and convert more than 90 units of measure (e.g., meters, fortnights and watts). The Fathom CD-ROM contains online help, 31 movies that provide basic instruction, hundreds of sample data sets, and demonstration files showing the capabilities of the software.
