Intended for 3D geological/geophysical visualisation of layered data and will eventually form part of a geophysical visualisation package.
Run ThreedDemo to get an idea of how to use.
INPUTS: LayerN: The number of the layer to be plotted
R: a m*n*k matrix of colour/resistivity data for each layer where
m*n is the size
of the grid and k is the layer number
Z: a m*n*k+1 matrix of elevation data for each layer. Therefore
Z(:,:,1) gives the topography of the land, Z(:,:,2) would be the
topography of the interface between layer 1 and layer 2.
Z(:,:,k+1) gives the topography of the base of the last layer.
Xn, Yn: m*n matrices of the base grid containing the XY co-ords
for each point.
NOTE: Each matrix must be surrounded by NaNs. This could be
achieved in two ways: 1. Use the NaNMat function
2. Plot a pcolor image of the surface
and use ginput to draw a polygon of
the desired surface. Then use
'inpolygon' to replace all those
values lying outside with NaN. See
the file ThreedDemo for help.
OUTPUTS: hLight: handle of the light object for manipulating lighting.
Has been tested on large data sets (10000 points). Uses opengl for rendering, but this can easily be changed.
