Plotting 3-D Data
Function of 3 variables, i.e. f(x,y,z)
If f is a scalar quantity, can:
- Plot 2-D slices
- Plot isosurfaces
- These are now 3-D surfaces. Can use wireframe or polygons. Can shade with second variable g(x,y,z).
- Plot volumetric rendering
- Solve transfer equation ("ray tracing") using emissivity proportional to data value.
