Data Visualization
Using a host of original algorithms developed at Wolfram Research, Mathematica provides powerful functions that automate the process of creating cognitively and aesthetically compelling representations of structured and unstructured data—not only for points, lines, and surfaces, but also for graphs and networks.
ListPlot plot lists of points
ListLinePlot plot lines through lists of points

ListPlot3D 3D plot from lists of 3D height data
ListPointPlot3D 3D point scatter plot

ListContourPlot, ListDensityPlot contour and density plots from height values
ListContourPlot3D 3D contour surfaces from 3D field values

ListCurvePathPlot, ListSurfacePlot3D reconstruct curves and surfaces from points

ArrayPlot plot an array of values or colors
ReliefPlot plot an array with simulated relief
MatrixPlot plot values in a matrix

DateListPlot, DateListLogPlot date and time plots

Graph Visualization
GraphPlot lay out a general graph
LayeredGraphPlot draw a graph in a layered or hierarchical way
TreePlot draw a tree structure

DiscretePlot plot functions of a discrete variable
