# ListSliceContourPlot3D

ListSliceContourPlot3D[array,surf]
generates a contour plot of the three-dimensional array of values sliced to the surface surf.

ListSliceContourPlot3D[{{x1,y1,z1,f1},{x2,y2,z2,f2},},surf]
generates a slice contour plot for the values at points .

ListSliceContourPlot3D[,{surf1,surf2,}]
generates slice contour plots over several slices , , .

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• ListSliceContourPlot3D gives smooth contours on surfaces in a volume.
• The array represents values in a volume, where by default the point is taken to have value with , , and for an array of dimension .
• The following basic slice surfaces can be given:
•  Automatic automatically determine slice surfaces "CenterPlanes" coordinate planes through the center "BackPlanes" coordinate planes at the back of the plot "XStackedPlanes" coordinate planes stacked along x axis "YStackedPlanes" coordinate planes stacked along y axis "ZStackedPlanes" coordinate planes stacked along z axis "DiagonalStackedPlanes" planes stacked diagonally "CenterSphere" a sphere in the center "CenterCutSphere" a sphere with a cutout wedge "CenterCutBox" a box with a cutout octant
• ListSliceContourPlot3D[data] is equivalent to .
• The following parametrizations can be used for basic slice surfaces:
•  {"XStackedPlanes",n}, generate n equally spaced planes {"XStackedPlanes",{x1,x2,…}} generate planes for {"CenterCutSphere",ϕopen} cut angle facing the view point {"CenterCutSphere",ϕopen,ϕcenter} cut angle with center angle in plane
• , follow the specifications for , with additional features shown in the scope examples.
• The following general slice surfaces can be used:
•  surfaceregion a two-dimensional region in 3D, e.g. Hyperplane volumeregion a three-dimensional region in 3D where is taken as the boundary surface, e.g. Cuboid
• The following wrappers can be used for slice surfaces :
•  Annotation[surf,label] provide an annotation Button[surf,action] define an action to execute when the surface is clicked EventHandler[surf,…] define a general event handler for the surface Hyperlink[surf,uri] make the surface act as a hyperlink PopupWindow[surf,cont] attach a popup window to the surface StatusArea[surf,label] display in status area when the surface is moused over Tooltip[surf,label] attach an arbitrary tooltip to the surface
• ListSliceContourPlot3D has the same options as Graphics3D, with the following additions and changes:
•  Axes True whether to draw axes BoundaryStyle Automatic how to style surface boundaries BoxRatios {1,1,1} bounding 3D box ratios ClippingStyle None how to draw values clipped by PlotRange ColorFunction Automatic how to color the plot ColorFunctionScaling True whether to scale the arguments to ColorFunction Contours Automatic how many or what contours to show on each surface ContourShading Automatic how to shade regions between contours ContourStyle Automatic the style for contour lines DataRange Automatic the range of x, y, and z values to assume for data PerformanceGoal \$PerformanceGoal aspects of performance to optimize PlotLegends None legends for color gradients PlotPoints Automatic approximate number of samples for the slice surfaces in each direction PlotRange {Full,Full,Full,Automatic} range of f or other values to include PlotTheme \$PlotTheme overall theme for the plot RegionFunction (True&) how to determine whether a point should be included TargetUnits Automatic desired units to use
• ColorFunction is by default supplied with the scaled value of f.
• RegionFunction is by default supplied with x, y, z, and f.
• For an array of dimension , the setting is equivalent to DataRange{{1,r},{1,s},{1,t}}.
