Data analysis and graphics tools for visual data exploration include the following capabilities:
Creating summary visualizations, such as histograms or scatter plots
Adjusting the view of a graph by panning, zooming, or rotating
Highlighting and editing observations on graphs
Describing observations on graphics
Connecting data graphs with variables
Used alone or together, these tools help you perceive trends, noise, and relationships in data sets.

You can rotate graphs to any orientation by enabling rotation mode and controlling rotation options,
Data cursors enable you to read data directly off a graph, save it in the workspace, and label data points.
Use data analysis and graphics tools to visually explore data sets.
Inspect graphed data with the Variables editor and data tips.
Interactively highlight portions of graphs.
Connect graph data to workspace variables.
You can customize a graph interactively using the Property Editor, the Plot Browser, and the Figure Palette.
This example shows how to create a figure with multiple graphs interactively and add different types of plots to each graph using the plot tools.
