I am plotting a 3D graph and a contour of the same. Then I plot few lines on the contour plot. I want to know the value of the contour where the line crosses the contour and also the coordinates where intersection happens. Can anyone please help me with this
No products are associated with this question.
I assume by 3D graph with contour, you mean you have 3D data represented in 2D by a contour plot? Or do you mean something like contour3 or isosurface?
Assuming the former, the coordinates of the contour lines generated via
[c,h] = contour(x,y,z);
are found in the c matrix. There are a few File Exchange functions (like contourcs) that can simplify the task of extracting those coordinates.
If you have the Mapping Toolbox, polyxpoly can calculate the line intersections. Otherwise, there are a bunch of FEX entries to calculate the intersections of two lines/curves (like this one).
