ListPointPlot3D

ListPointPlot3D[{{x1, y1, z1}, {x2, y2, z2}, ...}]
generates a 3D scatter plot of points with coordinates {xi, yi, zi}.
ListPointPlot3D[array]
generates a 3D scatter plot of points with a 2D array of height values.
ListPointPlot3D[{data1, data2, ...}]
plots several collections of points, by default in different colors.
AxesTruewhether to draw axes
BoxRatios{1,1,0.4}bounding 3D box ratios
ColorFunctionAutomatichow to determine the color of points
ColorFunctionScalingTruewhether to scale arguments to ColorFunction
DataRangeAutomaticthe range of x and y values to assume for data
FillingNonehow to fill in stems for each point
FillingStyleAutomaticstyle to use for filling
PlotRange{Full,Full,Automatic}the range of z or other values to include
PlotRangePaddingAutomatichow much to pad the range of values
PlotStyleAutomaticgraphics directives to specify the styles of points
RegionFunction(True&)how to determine whether a point should be included
  • ListPointPlot3D[{data1, data2, ...}] by default uses different colors to indicate points from different lists.
  • ListPointPlot3D[array] by default takes the x and y coordinate values for each data point to be successive integers starting at 1.
  • The elements of array can also be triples {x11, y11, z11}, specifying heights zij at explicit positions {xij, yij}.
  • In the default case with no explicit x and y given, the setting DataRange->{{xmin, xmax}, {ymin, ymax}} specifies the ranges of coordinate values to use.
  • With the default setting DataRange->Automatic, ListPointPlot3D[{{a11, a12, a13}, ..., {an1, an2, an3}}] will assume that the data being given is {{x1, y1, z1}, ...}, rather than an n×3 array of height values.
