Axis Tickmarks

Tickmarks divide an axis into equal sections by a step whose value is determined by the special options of an axis. Tickmarks are used to make the data within a chart clearer, and more readable. In addition, axis labels may accompany them. There are two types of tickmarks: major and minor.
