How do you label the axes in ContourPlot?
For a simple 3D plot
Plot3D[Sin[x] Cos[y], {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -Pi, Pi},
AxesLabel -> {"X", "Y", "Sin[x] Cos[y]"}]
Works well. But why doesn't the following work?
ContourPlot[Sin[x] Cos[y], {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -Pi, Pi},
AxesLabel -> {"X", "Y", "Sin[x] Cos[y]"}]
I also tried removing the 'z' label with no change.
I have looked throughout the ContourPlot documentation and the options
available and I don't see AxesLabel available. You can label the
individual contours with their values, etc. Do you have to go to
graphic primitives and do it manually?
Second question: how would you change the font size for the numbers
on the axes? I tried some the ways demonstrated for plot with no luck.
