What is a surface plot?
Example of a surface plot or graph:
This is a surface plot of the Gaussian distribution function, e(-(x2+y2)). The x-axis and y-axis are the x and y values of the function from 0 to 40 (independent variables). The z-axis is the resulting value of the function (dependent variable) with a range from 0 to 1.
