Chart Labeling, Legending, & Annotation

The Wolfram Language's integrated symbolic architecture makes possible a uniquely powerful and streamlined approach to labeling and legending, in which metadata can manually or programmatically be freely mixed with numerical data. The metadata can also attach arbitrary typeset, graphical, or interactive labels and legends to individual data elements, categories of data, and complete datasets.
