A contour plot represents a 3-D surface by plotting lines that connect points with common z-values along a slice. For example, you can use a contour plot to visualize the height of a surface in two or three dimensions.
- Label Contour Plot Levels
This example shows how to label each contour line with its associated value.
- Contour Plot with Major and Minor Grid Lines
You can create a contour plot with emphasis on selected contour lines by splitting the data and creating two overlapping contour plots.
- Change Fill Colors for Contour Plot
This example shows how to change the colors used in a filled contour plot.
- Highlight Specific Contour Levels
This example shows how to highlight contours at particular levels.
