AxesOrigin

FilledSmallSquare AxesOrigin is an option for two-dimensional graphics functions which specifies where any axes drawn should cross.

FilledSmallSquare AxesOrigin -> x, y specifies that the axes should cross at the point x, y.

FilledSmallSquare AxesOrigin -> Automatic uses an internal algorithm to determine where the axes should cross. If the point {0, 0} is within, or close to, the plotting region, then it is usually chosen as the axis origin.

FilledSmallSquare In contour and density plots, AxesOrigin -> Automatic puts axes outside the plotting area.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 1.9.2 and Section 2.10.5.

FilledSmallSquare New in Version 2.
