Fill Areas

If you select Fill Areas, the areas between contour lines are filled with the contour line colors. This option is available in the Launch window and in the red triangle menu for Contour Plot. Figure 10.6 shows a plot with contour lines on the left and a plot with the contour areas filled on the right.

Areas are filled from low to high values. An additional color is added in the filled contour plot for the level above the last, and highest, contour line. The fill area colors shown in the plot are the JMP default colors.
