Contour Plots with Vectors
Posted: Nov 30, 2012 1:13 PM

I've done quite a bit of reading over this topic and still can't quite get my code to work.

I have three 1 dimensional vectors. The x and y values correspond to cordinates and the z values will be a magnitude reading taken at the x and y cordinates.

For example x=[1 4 2 3] y=[5 4 2 6] z=[1.1 1.9 1.6 1.2]

I need to make a contour plot of this data. I know I need z to be at least a 2x2 matrix and so the data must be interpolated at the points I don't know.

My question is if I know the values below how do I use interp2 to find the '+' values so I can use that resulting matrix in a contour plot

1.1 + + +
+ 1.9 + +
+ + 1.6 +
+ + + 1.2

Thanks for any and all help
