is an option for plotting functions that specifies styles in which uncertainty intervals are drawn.


  • IntervalMarkersStyle can take the following forms:
  • Automaticautomatically styled markers
    Noneno error bars
    ggraphics directive g
    Directive[g1,g2,]combined directives g1,g2,
    {g1,g2,}individual directives for successive sets of markers
    <|"prop1"val1,|>structured styling of interval markers
  • The properties and values for structured styling include:
  • "FenceStyle"stylestyle of fences
    "FenceWidth"widthwidth of fences
    "WhiskerStyle"stylestyle of whiskers
  • The width is given as a fraction of the width of the box, and the style can be any directive.
  • By default, IntervalMarkersStyle inherits from PlotStyle.

Basic Examples  (3)

Uncertainties automatically inherit the plot style:

Interval marker styles are different for each dataset:

Specify the style for uncertainties:

Scope  (5)

Use different styles for different sets:

Customize the style for uncertainties:

Use bands to visualize uncertainty continuously:

Use ellipses to visualize uncertainty as an area:
