# ListVectorPlot

ListVectorPlot[array]
generates a vector plot from an array of vector field values.

ListVectorPlot[{{{x1, y1}, {vx1, vy1}}, ...}]
generates a vector plot from vector field values given at specified points .

ListVectorPlot[{data1, data2, ...}]
plots data for several vector fields.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• ListVectorPlot[array] arranges successive rows of array up the page, and successive columns across.
• ListVectorPlot by default interpolates the data given, and plots vectors for the vector field at a regular grid of positions.
• With the setting , ListVectorPlot instead shows vectors associated with the particular vector field data points given.
• ListVectorPlot has the same options as Graphics, with the following additions and changes:
•  AspectRatio 1 ratio of height to width DataRange Automatic the range of x and y values to assume for data EvaluationMonitor None expression to evaluate at every function evaluation Frame True whether to draw a frame around the plot FrameTicks Automatic frame tick marks Method Automatic methods to use for the plot PerformanceGoal \$PerformanceGoal aspects of performance to try to optimize PlotRange {Full,Full} range of x, y values to include PlotRangePadding Automatic how much to pad the range of values RegionFunction True& determine what region to include VectorColorFunction None how to color vectors VectorColorFunctionScaling True whether to scale the argument to VectorColorFunction VectorPoints Automatic the number or placement of vectors to plot VectorScale Automatic the scale and size of vectors to plot VectorStyle Automatic how to draw vectors WorkingPrecision MachinePrecision precision to use in internal computations
• The arguments supplied to functions in RegionFunction and VectorColorFunction are x, y, , , Norm[{vx, vy}].
