Origin provides several types of 2D and 3D Vector graphs. A vector graph is a multidimensional graph used in industries such as meteorology, aviation, and construction that illustrates flow patterns (e.g. of wind, water, magnetic field), and represents both direction and magnitude at each point. See examples in the table below: Vector plot illustrating the effect on river water flow of two differently shaped pylons. A color graph adds magnitude as a fourth dimension. Contour plot depicting vertical wind velocities as a function of time and height, overlaid with a vector plot depicting wind speed and direction. This graph portrays flood impact on the morphology of channels abandoned by rivers. It uses a Contour Color Fill plot to depict depth elevation and a Vector XYAM plot to show flow velocities. Source.
