is an option for the vector field visualization functions that scales the vectors so that the longest vector displayed is of the length specified.
  • In function-based visualization functions, ScaleFactor->Automatic scales the vectors so that each vector fits within the grid without overlapping the base of another vector.
  • ScaleFactor->None does not rescale the vectors.
  • In list-based visualization functions, ScaleFactor->Automatic is the same as ScaleFunction->None.
