Graphics Improvements in Maple 12
Maple 12 includes many improvements in plotting. These are summarized below.
New Capability for plotcompare
Improvements to Plot Component
General Improvements to Plots
Polar plots can now be drawn with polar axes, and these axes may be customized in a number of ways. See the plots[polarplot] command for details.
A plot with two y-axes located at the left and right boundaries of the plot can now be drawn. See the plots[dualaxisplot] command for details.
Entering a set of points to be plotted has been made easier with the plot command and a number of commands in the plots package. These commands now accept two Vectors as input, with the first containing x-coordinates and the second containing y-coordinates.
The real and imaginary parts of an expression, typically involving special functions, can now be plotted in two 3-D boxes. See plots/plotcompare for more on this new option, expression_plot.
An action can now be performed when a 2-D plot within a Plot Component region is clicked, dragged, or when the drag ends. More information is available at Plot Component.
This section describes general improvements to the look and performance of plots in Maple 12.
Remembered plot attributes - Many of the attributes that are applied to a 2-D plot by using the context sensitive menu or drawing tools are remembered upon re-executing the plot command. For details on the remembered attributes, see Plot Attributes.
Plotting Guide - This new guide provides images of plots to help you find the tools and commands you need to display your expression or data in the form you desire. In the Standard interface, see PlottingGuide.
