Dear WizaRds,
I would like to create a 3d-plot with persp(). I sampled 17 points
with xyz-coordinates (real-life example!), representing the peaks of the
whole plane with "zero coordinates" x=3,y=3,z=3. My intention is to show
which entries are above or below the "zero" level with persp() on a
nicely created grid. I also tried scatterplot3d(), but, alas, I am
unable to tell the function that my points represent the peaks of the
plane and are either above or below "normal" (whatever that means...)
Please help me:
dat<-matrix(c(1.33,1.00,2.67,4.33,4.00,5.00,0.67,3.33,1.00,3.00,3.00,1.33,1.67,1.67,1.33,1.67,2.33,1.67,0.67,1.00,1.33,3.33,2.67,1.67,1.67,2.67,2.00,0.33,0.67,0.33,2.67,3.33,0.67,0.67,1.33,0.00,4.33,3.33,4.67,3.00,4.00,5.00,4.00,3.67,1.67,3.00,3.67,3.33,1.00,1.33,0.33),
ncol=3)
colnames(dat)<-c("x","y","z")
x=dat$x; y=dat$y, z=dat$z
persp(x,y,z) # doesn't work at all, of course, even if I utilize outer()
scatterplot3d(x,y,z) # returns a 3d scatterplot, but not the way I
would like to see it fit.
Thank you so much for your help and support!
