I have an array of data z=f(x,y) I would like to plot as a surface much
like ListPlot3D does. However, ListPlot3D requires a square and regularly
spaced array of x,y values. In fact in doesn't even ask for them at
all, but assumes the square, regular distribution. Is there a way to 
get a similar looking plot for a rectangular grid which may not be evenly
spaced, given values of x,y, and z. I really need the surface appearance, so 
ContourPlot, is out, and ParametericPlot3D requires functions, which I 
don't have, and I have way too many points to make an interpolating
Thanks for any ideas.
