  • ListContourPlot[ array ] generates a contour plot from an array of height values.
  • ListContourPlot returns a ContourGraphics object.
  • ListContourPlot has the same options as ContourGraphics.
  • Successive rows of array are arranged up the page; successive columns across the page.
  • See notes for ContourGraphics.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.9.9.
