Histogram3D[{{x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, ...}]
generates a three-dimensional bar graph representing a histogram of the bivariate data {{x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, ...}.
Histogram3D[{{f11, f12, ..., f1l}, ..., {fk1, fk2, ..., fkl}}, FrequencyData->True]
generates a histogram of the bivariate data, where fij is the frequency with which the original data falls in the category {i, j}.
  • The cross-sectional area of each solid bar is proportional to the area of the rectangular region defining the respective category.
  • The volume of the bar is proportional to the frequency with which the data falls in its category.
  • The following options can be given:
ApproximateIntervalsAutomaticwhether to adjust the interval boundaries to be simple numbers
FrequencyDataFalsewhether input represents the original data or frequencies in categories
HistogramCategoriesAutomaticspecifies categories in the histogram
HistogramRangeAutomaticlower and upper limits of points in histogram
HistogramScaleAutomaticscaling of the bar heights
BarEdgesTruewhether the edges of the bars are drawn
BarEdgeStyleGrayLevel[0]style of the edges of bars
BarStyleGrayLevel[1]style of the faces of bars
TicksAutomaticspecifies tick marks for axes
