ContourGraphics

  • ContourGraphics[ array ] is a representation of a contour plot.
  • array must be a rectangular array of real numbers, representing values.
  • The following options can be given:
  • ContourGraphics[ g ] converts DensityGraphics and SurfaceGraphics objects to ContourGraphics. The resulting graphics can be rendered using Show.
  • Graphics[ContourGraphics[ ... ]] generates a representation in terms of an ordinary Graphics object.
  • ContourGraphics is generated by ContourPlot and ListContourPlot.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.1Section 2.9.7.
  • See also: ListContourPlot, DensityGraphics.
