Combine Contour Plot and Quiver Plot

This example shows how to combine a contour plot and a quiver plot using the hold function.

Creating Stream Particle Animations

A stream particle animation is useful for visualizing the flow direction and speed of a vector field. The particles trace the flow along a particular stream line.

Stream Line Plots of Vector Data

This example shows how to use stream lines, slice planes, and contour lines in one graph.
