Hi,

like that?

BarChart3D[(binorm = {{4, 15, 24, 15, 4}, {15, 60, 90, 60, 15}, {24, 
      90, 144, 90, 24}, {15, 60, 90, 60, 15}, {4, 15, 24, 15, 4}})/
  Max[binorm], BarSpacing -> .5, Boxed -> False, 
 Axes -> {False, False, False}, ChartLayout -> "Grid", 
 BaseStyle -> {Medium, FontFamily -> "Arial"}, 
 PlotLabel -> "Field Study"]

Cheers
Patrick
