contour3

Creates 3D contoured surface in an axes.

Syntax

contour3(z)

contour3(x, y, z)

contour3(hAxes, ...)

Inputs

x, y, z
Range of the x, y and z axes.
Type: double | integer
Dimension: scalar | vector | matrix
hAxes
Axis handle.
Type: double
Dimension: scalar

Example

Contour3 plot example:

cla;
x=[0:0.1:2*pi];
y=x;
z=sin(x')*cos(y);
contour3(z)


Comments

If there is no axes, one will be created first. If x and y are omitted, the index of the columns of z is used for x coordinates and the index of the rows of z is used for y coordinates. contour3 () takes optional arguments to control the surface style. It can be either the contour levels or the contour line style, or both. If the first argument of contour3 () is an axes handle, surfaces will be created in that axes.
