Plot Annotations and Customizations

In Maple, you can customize and annotate plots easily using the Plot Builder Assistant, context-sensitive menus, or options in plot commands.

Options for controlling the appearance of 2-D and 3-D plots and animations include:

  • Typeset text and mathematical expressions in titles, legends, plot labels, tickmark labels, and axis labels
  • Extensive plot annotation tools, including sketching, typing, and drawing of lines, arrows, and shapes on plots
  • Control over tickmark spacing and the generation of subticks, including the ability to place tickmarks at multiples of π
  • Control over ranges, color, linestyle, point style, axis style, gridlines, legend placement, and more
  • Control over surface style, lighting, glossiness, transparency, shading, projection, orientation, and axis color for 3-D plots and animations
  • International (non-English) characters supported
  • Interactive plot manipulators: zooming, panning, point probe (2-D) and real-time rotation (3-D)

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

  • 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.
