Hello. I wish to make a 3D plot of some discretely sampled data I have. My data comes most coveniently as x,y,z triplets. Now, the natural command to use is ListPlot3D. However, ListPlot3D wants its input to be a 2D array, namely the z values evaluated on the grid of (equally) spaced points in the x,y plane. This shows me the shape of my data just fine, but I would like to have my real x and y values on the axes. How can I do this? Is there another plotting command that will let me pass my triplets of points? This would also negate the need for equally spaced data. Thanks for any suggestions. -John ________________________________________________________________________ John D.
