Surface Plot

Explore Contours of Responses across Three Factors

A surface plot is a three-dimensional plot with one or more dependent variables represented by a smooth surface. You can display up to four dependent variables on the same surface plot.

JMP produces surface plots in the following two situations:

• The Surface Plot platform creates a stand-alone report that contains a surface plot for formulas. The formulas can be formula columns in your data table or mathematical formulas that do not involve any data points.

• The Surface Profiler option in many model fitting platforms produces a surface plot for the fitted model in the existing platform report.
