This question was posed in mg11879. Please refer to mg11986 and other answers. The general idea goes as follows (I quote from my own mg11986): "ListPlot3D plots the heights z corresponding to points of a three-dimensional array in the plane xy. I assume that your data are the list of values (X,Y,Z), where Z is the height corresponding to the pair (X,Y). You have to construct a grid in the xy plane where x varies between min X and max X, and y varies between min Y and max Y, in order to get an array of m values of x and n values of y, say. Then, for each value of x in the array, take the list of heights z corresponding to the consecutive values of y (you may have to fill in zeros, if necessary). You end up with the list h = {z11, z12,..., z1n}, {z21, z22,...,z2n},...,{zm1,zm2,...,zmn}} . ListPlot3D[h] will give the 3D plot you are looking for. However, it will assign the values 1,2,...m and 1,2,..n, respectively, to the consecutive points along the x and y coordinates, so that you will have to relabel those points according to the actual values in your data. This should be no trouble using the TickMarks option." Other related answers are also helpful. Good luck, Tomas Garza Mexico City
