  • AbsolutePointSize[ d ] is a graphics directive which specifies that points which follow are to be shown if possible as circular regions with absolute diameter d.
  • The absolute diameter is measured in units of printer's points, approximately equal to of an inch.
  • AbsolutePointSize can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.3.
  • See also: Offset, PointSize, Thickness.
