    XYZ Plot Types
    In This Topic

    The XYZ plot area contains series that have values in three dimensions. When visualized in 2D, the XYZ plot area takes the form of a rectangle with a horizontal x-axis representing values and a vertical y-axis representing values. When visualized in 3D, the XYZ plot area takes the form of a cube with a horizontal x-axis representing values, a vertical y-axis representing values, and a depth z-axis representing values.

    The Elevation and Rotation properties in the plot area class can be used to make the z-axis visible.

    If an XYZ plot area has multiple x, y, or z-axes then the series can be assigned to a specific axis using the axis's ID. There are three subtypes of XYZ series: XYZ point, XYZ line, and XYZ surface.

    You can have any of these types of XYZ plots.
