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 improve comprehension of a chart's data. In addition, axis labels may accompany them. There are two types of tickmarks: major and minor. For more detailed information, refer to Grid Lines, Tickmarks and Interlacing.
