6  Plots and Animations

Maple can generate many forms of plots, allowing you to visualize a problem and further understand concepts.

• 

Maple accepts explicit, implicit, and parametric forms to display 2-D and 3-D plots and animations.

• 

Maple recognizes many coordinate systems.

• 

All plot regions in Maple are active; therefore, you can drag expressions to and from a plot region.

• 

Maple offers numerous plot options, such as axis styles, title, colors, shading options, surface styles, and axis ranges, which give you complete control to customize your plots.

For a reference to the types of plots available in Maple, see the Plotting Guide.
