New in 6.0: Data Visualization

Building on Mathematica's strengths in large-scale data handling, numerical optimization, and geometric computation, Version 6.0 brought a new level of automation to data visualizationwith major new original algorithms for graph layout, immediate surface reconstruction, automated labeling, seamless handling of unstructured data, geometrically driven interpolation, and automatic date plottingas well as major innovations in automated aesthetics.
