    Gradient VECTOR field. If it is a vector that would make sense

    Length/magnitude YES, direction NO. The direction will be independent of co-ordinates which differ by translation and equal scaling of the axes, BUT it will NOT be independent of rotational transformations. |dw:1406717257428:dw|
