Converting z data to matrix
Posted:
Jan 26, 2013 10:32 AM


Hi guys,
I wonder if any one could be so kind to help me with what I'm sure is probably relatively straight forward. If I have x,y, and z data as follows:
X= 1 2 3 4 5 y= 1 2 3 4 5 z= 8 4 9 7 3
Is there any way of making z into the matrix from the above:
Z= 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 7 0 0 0 9 0 0 0 4 0 0 0 8 0 0 0 0
This is just an example data set my data set is much bigger than this but I figured if there is a way of converting z into the example matrix and could apply the same method to my much bigger data set.
Any help would be much appreciated.
