Surface plots are available as a separate platform (Graph > Surface Plot) and as options in many reports (known as the Surface Profiler). Its functionality is similar wherever it appears.
The plots can be of points or surfaces. When the surface plot is used as a separate platform (that is, not as a profiler), the points are linked to the data table. The points are clickable, respond to the brush tool, and reflect the colors and markers assigned in the data table. Surfaces can be defined by a mathematical equation, or through a set of points defining a polygonal surface. These surfaces can be displayed smoothly or as a mesh, with or without contour lines. Labels, axes, and lighting are fully customizable.
Surface Plot is built using the 3-D scene commands from the JMP Scripting Language (JSL). Complete documentation of the OpenGL-style scene commands is found in the Scripting Guide.
