Re: Axis Tick Label Orientation

Is it possible to change the orientation in which the tick labels are
displayed? I am currently using the LabelTable to set string values for
the tick labels which are to long to display in a line. What would be
ideal is to display them at an angle of 45 degrees. Is this possible and
how would I do it?

There is no way in VisAD currently to do this.  It would
require a modification to AxisScale.  I've been (back) looking
at AxisScale for another project and have run into similar
issues.  However, I don't have any plans to make modifications
like that at this time.

If you'd like to modify AxisScale to do what you want and
contribute it back, that would be great.
