Methods of Axis API

D3 facilitates some essential functions to design the axes, which are discussed below.

d3.axisTop(): It is a method/function applied to draw the horizontal axis on the top.

d3.axisRight(): It can be used to draw a vertical axis, i.e., right-oriented.

d3.axisBottom(): It is used to draw a horizontal axis at the bottom.

d3.axisLeft(): This method is applied to draw the vertical axis on the left.
