OK this may be a long shot.
I often have to make a plot of like this: the heights (z) of trees in a
forest (whose locations are unif rand x,y) are recorded. Now we make a 3D
shaded surface plot of the (x,y,z) data. A triangular mesh is made by
finding the Delaunay triangulation (nearest neighbours are connected).
I am not talking about doing some form of interpolation (hence forcing the
data onto a regular grid).
Right now I make this type of plot with Mathematica, but it would be nice
to do this in R and get rid of Mma.
Thanks very much Ross for getting the persp() function into R.
