# How do I label points when using Graphics? [closed]

Let say I want to draw a point and label it. The command I use to draw points is

Graphics[{Point[{0,0}], Point[{1,1}]}]


This draws the points $(0,0)$ and $(1,1)$. How can I label them in the resulting graphics as $(0,0)$ and $(1,1)$?

Here's a somewhat ridiculous way to achieve that:

ListPlot[
{Labeled[{0, 0}, "The first point"], Labeled[{1, 1}, "The second one", Left]},
Axes -> False
]


• this has the added advantage of using the built-in algorithms for label placement. +1 May 21 '16 at 0:51
• @rcollyer that's what I was getting at with my link to (45496) above. May 21 '16 at 17:45
• @Mr.Wizard expecting me to follow every link? Sheesh, you would think I spent all my time surfing the net. :) May 21 '16 at 21:05
• @rcollyer lol - no :-) May 21 '16 at 21:09
