2-D and 3-D Plots
Plot continuous, discrete, surface, and volume data
Use plots to visualize data. For example, you can compare sets
of data, track changes in data over time, or show data distribution.
Create plots programmatically using graphics functions or interactively
using the Plots tab at the top of the MATLAB® desktop.
For illustrations of some of the types of plots you can create
programmatically, see Common Graphics Functions in MATLAB.
