Three-dimensional scatter plots with a regression plane

In this recipe, we will see how we can visualize a three-dimensional scatter plot with a fitted regression plane.

Getting ready

Let's recall the airquality data from the datasets library. In this particular recipe, we will use Ozone as a dependent variable and Solar.R and Temp as independent variables in order to fit the regression model, and then we visualized it.

How to do it…

To produce this plot, we will perform the following steps:

  1. Attach the dataset using the attach() function.
  2. Create a basic three-dimensional scatter plot and store it in an R object.
  3. Fit the linear regression model, relating Ozone as a dependent variable and Solar.R and Temp as independent variables and store it as an R object. ...
