ListVectorPlot3D

ListVectorPlot3D[array]
generates a 3D vector plot from a 3D array of vector field values.
ListVectorPlot3D
generates a 3D vector plot from vector field values given at specified points .
ListVectorPlot3D
plots data for several vector fields.
  • ListVectorPlot3D by default interpolates the data given, and plots vectors for the vector field at a regular 3D grid of positions.
