# Point

 Point[coords]is a graphics primitive that represents a point. Pointrepresents a collection of points.
• The coordinates can be given either in the ordinary form or or in scaled form Scaled or Scaled. »
• Offset can be used to specify coordinates in two dimensions. »
• Points are rendered if possible as circular regions. Their diameters can be specified using the graphics directive PointSize.
• Point diameters are not accounted for in hidden surface elimination for three-dimensional graphics.
• The option VertexColors can be used to specify colors for a collection of points.
• In 3D, the option VertexNormals can be used to specify effective normals for a collection of points, to be used to determine colors of points from lighting.
• Individual coordinates and lists of coordinates in points can be Dynamic objects.
