# Py5Graphics.points()
Draw a collection of points, each a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel.
## Description
Draw a collection of points, each a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel. The purpose of this method is to provide an alternative to repeatedly calling [](py5graphics_point) in a loop. For a large number of points, the performance of `points()` will be much faster.
The `coordinates` parameter should be a numpy array with one row for each point. There should be two or three columns for 2D or 3D points, respectively.
This method is the same as [](sketch_points) but linked to a `Py5Graphics` object. To see example code for how it can be used, see [](sketch_points).
## Signatures
```python
points(
coordinates: npt.NDArray[np.floating], # 2D array of point coordinates with 2 or 3 columns for 2D or 3D points, respectively
/,
) -> None
```
