  Not at all carefully tested, but:

## make up data
x  = 1:50
y = 1:50
z = outer(x,y,function(x,y) sin(2*pi*(x/10))+cos(2*pi*(y/25))^2)
v = expand.grid(x,y)

dat = data.frame(x=v[,1],y=v[,2],z=c(z))

## data as they would be read from your original data file

  [in my example x changes more rapidly than y.  You 
may need to play around with the identities of x and y]
