• ContourShading is an option for contour plots which specifies whether the regions between contour lines should be shaded.
• With ContourShading -> False, regions between contour lines are left blank.
• With ContourShading -> True, regions are colored based on the setting for the option ColorFunction. The default is to color the regions with gray levels running from black to white with increasing height.
• The value given as the argument for the ColorFunction
function is the average of the values of the contour lines bounding a particular region. If ColorFunctionScaling -> True
, it is scaled so as to lie between 0 and 1.
