Graphics Improvements in Maple 12

  

Maple 12 includes many improvements in plotting.  These are summarized below.

 

Polar Plots

Dual-Axis Plots

Point Plots

New Capability for plotcompare

Improvements to Plot Component

General Improvements to Plots

Polar 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.

Dual-Axis Plots

  

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.

Point Plots

  

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.

New Capability for plotcompare

  

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.

Improvements to Plot Component

• 

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.

General Improvements to Plots

  

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.
