Maple provides an extensive suite of visualization tools. Create 2-D and 3-D plots and animations interactively using the Plot Builder Assistant and context-sensitive menus.  Maple also includes a large collection of commands and programming tools for plot creation and customization. These commands can be used interactively or included in Maple programs and scripts to create custom specialized plots and advanced applications.


  • 2-D and 3-D graphs and animations
  • Over 170 plot types and options, including implicit, contour, complex, polar, vector field, conformal, density, ODE, PDE, and, statistical plots
  • Engineering plots, including time and frequency domain responses and root-locus and root-contour plots
  • Wide variety of coordinate systems
  • Comprehensive Plotting Guide to plot types and options
  • Extensive customization and annotation tools
  • Layering of graphics and animations of different types
  • Standard geometric objects, regular solids, and polyhedra
  • Live Data Plots for creating and customizing statistical plots such as area charts, histograms, and pie charts
  • Smart plot view automatically focuses on the region of a 2-D plot that is more meaningful
  • Zoom and pan 2-D and 3-D plots and animations
  • Point probe for exploring the coordinates of 2-D plots
  • Real-time rotation of 3-D plots
  • Interactive control of parameters through slider controls
  • Add additional curves to a graph by dragging mathematical expressions into the plot region
  • Plot Builder Assistant for point-and-click creation and customization of many kinds of plots and animations
  • Modify plot options interactively using context-sensitive menus and toolbar buttons
  • Create and explore popular fractals, including the Mandelbrot, Julia, Newton, and other time-iterative
  • fractals.

Watch a Demonstration

Visualization is used extensively throughout the Maple demonstration movies. In particular, see:

  • Dynamic Plot Annotations in Maple
    In Maple, you can add dynamic plot annotations that will appear when you hover over specific points or curves, so you can convey even more information in your graphs.

  • Easy Plot Creation in Maple
    See how easy it is to create and customize plots in Maple using the interactive plot builder.

  • Visualizing Maps and Geographic Data in Maple
    Map visualization tools and a geographical database in Maple let you explore and understand world data in a highly visual way.

  • State-of-the-Art Visualization Capabilities
    Visualization is a powerful and indispensable tool for gaining insight into any modeling, simulation or analysis work. Maple makes visualizing your problems and solutions easy through its extensive plotting functionality. In this brief demonstration you’ll see how Maple can quickly produce professionally-rendered graphics to enhance your mathematical solutions.
