MATLAB® offers a variety of data plotting functions plus a set of tools to create and modify graphic displays. The following two tables classify and illustrate the kinds of plots you can create with MATLAB. They include line, bar, area, direction and vector field, radial, and scatter graphs.
When you execute a plotting function, MATLAB clears and replaces the current graph, if one exists. The function resets axis limits and other properties so that each graph is displayed appropriately.
This table shows MATLAB 2-D plotting functions. Click any icon to see the documentation for that function.

This table shows MATLAB 3-D and volume plotting functions.
Some functions generate 3-D data (
that you can use to generate geometric shapes on which you can superimpose
your data. Click any picture in the table to see the documentation
for that function.
