  • Point[ coords ] is a graphics primitive that represents a point.
  • The coordinates can be given either in the absolute form x , y or x , y , z or in scaled form Scaled[ x , y ] or Scaled[ x , y , z ].
  • Offset can be used to specify coordinates in two dimensions.
  • Points are rendered if possible as circular regions. Their diameters can be specified using the graphics primitive PointSize.
  • Point diameters are not accounted for in hidden surface elimination for three-dimensional graphics.
  • Shading and coloring of points can be specified using CMYKColor, GrayLevel, Hue or RGBColor.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.2Section 2.9.8.
