PAST – Personal Analysis System for Treering research
Ease of use
The most recent version, PAST5, is the result of 15+ years of development and interaction with our customers. The use of the software by many laboratories and individuals all over the world and the feedback we receive from our users may be evidence that the visual concept of a dendrochronology software based on graphs and aided by statistical tests introduced with PAST2 in 1998 comprises a rather easy access to dendrochronology research and lowers the inhibition threshold many people have when it comes to statistical software packages.
Based on standards
PAST uses a project based approach to handle and store data. Dendrochronological records and their relations are stored in single files that allow for easy portability of data. By using a worldwide accepted open file format standard (XML) for PAST projects we ensure that data is not buried in files but can be accessed by many other programs, even Internet browsers.

Speed – It´s your time
The new multisync assistant is a valuable tool when it comes to mass synchronization operations. Modern computers have a lot of number crunching power that often waits idly to be finally used. PAST takes full advantage of the latest multicore CPU architecture and performs time critical operations as paralleled multithreads. Waiting for synchronization results is a thing of the past!
Portable – Your license to go
The USB license key
|PAST5 was developed with portability in mind. The software can be installed on an unlimited number of computers or copied to an external USB storage device. The license you receive when buying the program resides on an USB license key that will activate the program as soon as you connect the key to a certain PC.
