class toyplot.mark.Mark(annotation=False)[source]

Bases: object

Abstract interface for Toyplot marks.

Marks are data objects that are added to a coordinate system for display on a canvas. Marks carry no explicit visual representation of their own - it is up to the coordinate system and rendering backend to determine how to render the data.

For example, a scatterplot mark is rendered using points by a cartesian coordinate system, but could be rendered using lines by a hypothetical parallel coordinate system.

annotation

Warning

attribute ‘toyplot.mark.Mark.annotation’ undocumented
