Hi Patrick > > I have data in the form of (x,y,height) generated from a program--ie > simple lists of numbers. How can I make a contour plot? thanks > pm 1. If your data lie on a regular grid, you can use interpolation 2. If not, try one of the packages in Wickham-Jones' ExtendGraphics package 3. After loading Graphics`Graphics3D, convert the surface graphics to contour graphics. -- ================================================================== David Annetts _____________ http://www.ocs.mq.edu.au/~dannetts/ |C R C A M E T| |-------------| |_____ | CRC for Australian Mineral |````` \ | Exploration Technologies |`````/$\ | Earth Sciences |````/$$$\____| Macquarie University, NSW 2109 |```/$$$/.....| AUSTRALIA |``/$$$/......| phone: +(1-61-2) 9850 9280, fax (1-61-2) 9850 8366 ------------- ==================================================================
