I need to construct a 2 dimensional grid/array of cells/pixels (n x n), viewed obliquely; so it's really a 3D plot. The value/amplitude/height of each cell must be a random number; that is, the heights of the cells should have a normal/Gaussian distribution with a sigma value that I input. One of the cells should have a constant value added to the random variable. The "plot" also needs to be animated, so that the values/heights of the cells will be time varying with a normal distribution, and the cell with the constant value added will move across the grid/array. How do I do it? Thanks for any help. Lanny.sterritt at lmco.com
