SDL Component Suite - ContourPlot

A contour plot is a graphical technique for visualizing 3-dimensional surfaces by plotting lines (isohypses) at constant altitudes (z coordinate) on the base plane (x-y-plane). As an alternative the lines may be replaced by a colored base plane, whose colors represent the z-values.

The class TContourPlot supports the generation of both isohypses (colored or monochrome, see bottom left) and color encoded base planes (top left). You can freely configure all parameters of the plot, such as the range of the axes, the color array, the mapping of the colors to the z-values, the distance of the isohypses, etc.

For more details please have a look at the online help pages and the example program below.

The component TContourPlot is part of the unit RCHART which is part of the SDL Component Suite.

Contour Plot This application shows the usage of the component TContourPlot to visualize complex surfaces either by using isohypses or by displaying color encoded base planes. The user may select from different functions and can experiment with various parameters of the component.
