Hi John, Not the most elegant solution I'm sure, but it works: num = 30; pts = Table[{Random[], Random[], RandomInteger[100]}, {i, 1, num}]; ptset = Table[pts[[i, 1 ;; 2]], {i, 1, num}]; ptlabel = Table[pts[[i, 3]], {i, 1, num}]; pts; ListPlot[Table[Tooltip[ptset[[i]], ptlabel[[i]]], {i, 1, num}], PlotStyle -> {Thick, PointSize[Large]}, PlotRange -> {{0, 1.1}, {0, 1.1}} ] Regards, Jamie On 3 Jan 2009, at 6:55 PM, John wrote: > Hello! > > I have a set of triplets {{x1,y1,s1},{x2,y2,s2},...}.
