Hi everyone,
I'm trying to plot a 3D surface in Matlab, having three different vectors x,y,z. All the three have dimension 1601x1 and they are not correlated by any mathematical formula, they are only coordinates of some points that have to be plotted. I would like to plot a 3d homogeneous surface (not point by point) with different colours indicating the different heights (maybe yellow where z is higher and blue where z is lower). I don't want a discrete surface (actually I've already tried to use plot3 but it seems to be a point surface or a line one, I want an homogenous thing).
Could you help me please?
Thank you in advance,
Gianmarco

Let (x,y,z) be your three column arrays.
dt = delaunayTriangulation(x,y) ;
tri = dt.ConnectivityList ;
figure
trisurf(tri,x,y,z)
