Items tagged with surfdata


I have an two arrays of elements Op1[i,j] with -5 <= i,j <= 5 and Op2[i,j] with 5<=i,j<= 35 . When I use surfdata like


it produces a plot with both the range of Op1 and Op2 between 0 and 1 (see Fig1).

I tried surfdata({0p1,Op2},-5..35,-5..35) but this only gave the range of the figure from -5 to 35, -5 to 35 but with both plots scaled so that they cover the whole range(see Fig2).

How do i make surfdata use different ranges on the same plot for both arrays?

I found from this forum that to plot a 2D array of points use can be made of the Maple procedure surfdata.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to plot contours in (preferrably) Maple 16 or Maple 17?

I tried the following

Output := Array(-10 .. 10, -10 .. 10, proc (i, j) options operator, arrow; i^2+j^2 end proc):
F := proc (x, y) -> x^2+y^2 end proc:
surfdata(Output, color = F, dimension = 2);

but "the option dimension = 2" is a Maple 18 addition.

Ideally, I would like also to be able to plot contours with options found in the procedure


I am working in a simulation, which requires me to create a checkerboard of values which I paint afterwards according to its value. The idea is to create a sequence of images (which I could export for every iteration and create into a gif/timelapse afterwards). The problem I am encountering is that when I try to plot it, I only obtain a difuse coloring scheme, without having a specific color for every pixel.

if you search for the color command in plots ( one of the examples is more or less the result I want, but I would like to have it without the gridlines and being able to control the color according to the value of the matrix in said position.


My current attempt, and the one closest to the solution is:


R:=Matrix(1..N,1..N, datatype=integer); for x from 1 to N do for y from 1 to N do R[x,y]:=P[x,y,2]*18+P[x,y,3]: od: od:R;
#P is the matrix where I do the calculations and R is the matrix I want to plot after every step of the calculation.

surfdata(Matrix(R), 1..N, 1..N, style=surface,
         dimension=2, labels=["x", "y"],
#the surfdata I resqued from another proyect I had. I know it is not thought for this tipe of grafs, but it was the closest I could come by.


I do not know if it is a better idea to use an Array or a Matrix to plot this. While the P array isn''t touched, I do not mind modifying in any way the R matrix

Thank you,


I’m using Maple 2015.2 to plot irregular spaced data using the surfplot command. The shape of the plot is as expected, however I’ve been unsuccessful in changing the color of the surface. I would like the surface to be a consistant color instead of the “rainbow” color scheme. I’ve tried both the color and colorscheme options to no avail.  I’m sure I’m making a very basic mistake, however I’m having difficulty finding it.
