I am wondering what the current best options are from F# for graphing: high quality 2D plots, 3D plots etc..
I started doing mathematical modelling in F# a couple of years ago, but gave up when I couldn't find an easy way to do 3D plots directly from F#, or to interface with Mathematica's excellent plotting capabilities.
I am wondering if there is anything currently available (free or commercial) that would do the job well. Grateful to know soon, as I am starting a new project and am deciding between F# and Mathematica: I much prefer the core language of F# but plotting functions is essential.
You might want to look at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/fsharpteam/archive/2011/04/15/getting-started-with-fsharpchart.aspx (download here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/FSharpChart-b59073f5) or http://fschart.codeplex.com/ and see if either suits your needs.
