MaxPlotPoints

MaxPlotPoints

is an option for plotting functions like ArrayPlot and ListPlot3D that specifies the maximum number of points that will explicitly be included in the output.

Details

  • With MaxPlotPoints->Infinity all points in the input will be included in the output.
  • With finite settings for MaxPlotPoints, the total number of points plotted is reduced by combining nearby points.

Examples

All the data points are used by default:

Only use 25 points for the plot:

Features can be minimized with a large dataset:

Reduce the number of points used to more easily see patterns in the data:
