Converting z data to matrix

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.
