```From the Help for ListPlot3D:

"array should be a rectangular array of real numbers representing z values."

"ListPlot3D[array] by default takes the x and y coordinate values for each data
point to taken to be successive integers starting at 1."

Needs["Graphics`"];

pts={{3,55,-3},{3,60,-3},{4,55,-2},{4,60,-2.5}};

ListSurfacePlot3D[Partition[pts,2],Axes->True];
