Vector Visualization
Mathematica provides state-of-the-art fully automated visualization of vector functions and data—suitable for representing flows, field lines and other vector fields of any complexity.
Stream Visualization
StreamPlot make a stream plot from a vector field function
ListStreamPlot make a stream plot from vector field data
Vector Visualization
VectorPlot plot vectors from a vector field function
ListVectorPlot plot vectors from vector field data
    
Vector + Scalar Visualization
StreamDensityPlot superimpose plots of vector and scalar field functions
ListStreamDensityPlot superimpose plots of vector and scalar field data
