  • Scaled[ x , y , ... ] gives the position of a graphical object in terms of coordinates scaled to run from 0 to 1 across the whole plot in each direction.
  • Scaled[ dx , dy , ... , , , ... ] gives a position obtained by starting at absolute coordinates , , ... , then moving by a scaled offset dx , dy , ... .
  • 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.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.4Section 2.9.10.
  • See also: PlotRange, PlotRegion, Offset.
