Chart Styling & Layout
From overall layout to details of particular features, Mathematica allows broad manual and programmatic control of the appearance of charts—fully integrated with its symbolic representation of graphics, interactivity, and analysis. Drawing on its unique computational aesthetics technology and award-winning graphic design, Mathematica makes it easy to achieve a level of chart styling that has in the past only been accessible through detailed hand rendering.
