Essential Surface Chart provides the following types to plot three dimensional data points.

  • Surface
  • WireframeSurface
  • Contour
  • WireframeContour

Surface

Surface charts are used to explore the relationship between three dimensional data.

The following code shows how to set the type of surface.

<chart:SfSurfaceChart Type="Surface"/>
SfSurfaceChart chart = new SfSurfaceChart();

chart.Type = SurfaceType.Surface;

Viewing the surface chart from the top is called contour. It is a graphical technique that represents the three dimensional surface in a two dimensional format.

<chart:SfSurfaceChart Type="Contour"/>
SfSurfaceChart chart = new SfSurfaceChart();

chart.Type = SurfaceType.Contour;
