Contourf matrix plot contour

Asked by Mehdi on 30 Sep 2013
Latest activity Commented on by Walter Roberson on 4 Oct 2013

I have written a code to graph contours of a matrix in 2D. However, although i have values of MY2 <10, when it is plotted there is a white area for MY2<10. Would you please help me with this. I have checked this several times and it seems to be alright!

Your zip files did not appear to get attached.

Please show the contourf() call you use.

The call


requests that 10 contour levels be used, not a single contour level at value 10. To use a single contour level at value 10, code

[C, M] = contourf(MX2, MY2, MR2, [10 10]);

Thanks i will try your suggestion now. But I meant to have the contour values of MR2, MV2 and MU2 when MY2=10 or less. Currently the region with MY2<10 has no contour of MR2, MV2 or MU2 and is solid white.

Why not use logical indexing to find the cut-plane for MY2 being 10, and applying that logical index to MX2, MY2, MR2, and contourf() the result ?
