gives the position of a graphical object in terms of coordinates scaled to run from 0 to 1 across the whole plot range in each direction.
gives a position obtained by starting at ordinary coordinates , then moving by a scaled offset .
- Scaled can be used to specify scaled coordinates in any two‐ or three‐dimensional graphics primitive.
- You can use Scaled to represent objects that occupy a fixed region in a plot, independent of the specific range of coordinates in the plot.
- Scaled refers only to the region of a plot defined by its PlotRange and PlotRangePadding. It does not take account of elements such as tick labels, or of margins introduced by ImageMargins.
- Scaled can be used not only for coordinates, but also for scalar length measures such as radii.
- In 2D graphics, Scaled[r] is taken to be relative to the width of the whole graphic. In 3D graphics, it is taken to be relative to the diagonal of the 3D bounding box.
