Open Surface Viewer
The Surface Viewer, invoked using
is a GUI tool that lets you examine the output surface of an FIS stored
in a file,
a.fis, for any one or two inputs. Because
it does not alter the fuzzy system or its associated FIS structure
in any way, Surface Viewer is a read-only editor. Using the drop-down
menus, you select the two input variables you want assigned to the
two input axes (X and Y), as well the output variable you want assigned
to the output (or Z) axis.
If you want to create a smoother plot, use the Plot points field to specify the number of points on which the membership functions are evaluated in the input or output range. This field defaults to a value of 101.
Click Evaluate to perform the calculation and plot the output surface.
By clicking on the plot axes and dragging the mouse, you can manipulate the surface so that you can view it from different angles.
If there are more than two inputs to your system, you must supply the constant values associated with any unspecified inputs in the reference input section.
