I don't know what is meant, specifically, with the reference to the data classes; particularly imaginary as MATLAB grpahics don't display imaginary values at all, but probably the best compendium of the available graphs is in the <base documentation link to 2D and 3D graphs>. The others available in extended toolboxes are not gathered in any one place that I'm aware of although a number are overloaded functions that will operate on various specialty axes (like mapping) or handle specific subject areas.

It is difficult as the universe keeps expanding to have any idea of all that are available, indeed, agreed...

NO. I am not trying to destroy your morale. Instead I am telling you there are no templates of the kind you are searching for. At best, there is one (or more) line in the help of each function.

help plot3

For example, in the help for plot3, you will find some basic calling sequences, where if you follow them, they will yield a valid result.

plot3(X,Y,Z)

plot3(X,Y,Z,LineSpec)

plot3(X1,Y1,Z1,...,Xn,Yn,Zn)

plot3(X1,Y1,Z1,LineSpec1,...,Xn,Yn,Zn,LineSpecn)

It is not that we do not wish to share a template with you. There are no templates that you can just click on and get the result you desire to see. MATLAB is not Excel. As I said, if you need to use MATLAB, then you need to read the help. In there, you will find examples of how to call the codes. And that is as close as we can come.

And, to hopefully get your morale/optimism back up; it may not be nearly as much effort to create something like or close to the examples as you may think...

Z = peaks; % draw a surface w/ contours

sc = surfc(Z);

hold on % let add more w/o erasing

hAx=axes('Position',[0.7 0.7 0.25 0.20]); % another axis overlaying this one

hL=plot(hAx,Z(:,fix(width(Z)/2)),'linewidth',2); % draw a line into it of the data

xlim([0 50]), xticks([0:10:50]) % neaten it up a little...

ylabel(hAx,'Magnitude')

The rest will be created by using a subplot or tiledlayout arranged to place a matrix of axes in a given figure, it may be necessary to use the venerable subplot() here because I don't think you can put the second axis on top of another one in the tiledlayout--I think I recall having tried that and discovering it doesn't allow it.

The other plot could be as simple as

figure

hP=pcolor(Z);

hP.EdgeColor='none';

and then enhancements...

Don't let the need to write a few MATLAB commands overwhelm you...start in and try something...

@dpb possibly using GUIDE or AppDesigner to place the axes, a step forward to a so called "template"

How many template of 3D graph exist in Matlab ?

No templates of 3D graphs exist in MATLAB.

No templates of 2D graphs exist in MATLAB either.
