I would like to use Mathematica 4.0 to draw 3D plots and contour plots of
{x,y,z} data created by another program, say FORTRAN or APL.  I've been able
to import  {z} stored in an array and use ListPlot3D which looks fine, but
then their are no x or y axis information.   Essentially, I need results
that look like Graphics3D[f(x,y),{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}] and
ContourPlot[f(x,y),{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}] provided in a file to be

Help and suggestions greatly appreciated,
