I used Matlab6.5 to draw the energy landscape for the protein with principal coordinate axis in the X and Y planes and with energy along the Z axis. I got the irregular surface on the 2D map (XY plane). I just want to find the area for the surface. I  tried to edit the plot and get the points. But I just can't  copy all the points as whole. Is there a way to find the area for that surface directly in matlab or suggest me a way to get all the points on the surface.

Thanks for any suggestions/comments
