AspectRatio

FilledSmallSquare AspectRatio is an option for Show and related functions which specifies the ratio of height to width for a plot.

FilledSmallSquare AspectRatio determines the scaling for the final image shape.

FilledSmallSquare AspectRatio -> Automatic determines the ratio of height to width from the actual coordinate values in the plot.

FilledSmallSquare The default value AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio is used for two-dimensional plots. AspectRatio -> Automatic is used for three-dimensional plots.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 1.9.2, Section 1.9.6, Section 2.10.2 and Section 2.10.4.
