  1. The table lists the file formats that each tool is able to export starting from the visualized produced graph. Analyzing this table, it is possible to note that there exist a lot of different file formats, but each tool is able to save file in a limited number of different formats. More information on the save/export functions can be found in the tool's website, cited in the previous section. The ? means that it was not possible to establish the feature for the tool.
