I'm looking to graph a 4D data set (X, Y, Z, intensity) using opacity to represent intensity. I also want the color to be dependent on the Z variable as well to better show depth.
Here is the relevant code so far, I am a novice when it comes to Python:
. . . x_list #list of x values as floats y_list #list of y values as floats z_list #list of z values as floats i_list #list of intensity values as floats . . . import matplotlib.pyplot as plt from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import Axes3D fig = plt.figure() ax = fig.add_subplot(111, projection='3d') Axes3D.scatter(ax, x_list, y_list, z_list) . . .
So how can I do this?
I'm thinking the color could be a linear relationship between z_list and a color map (hsv for example), and opacity could be linear as well, i_list/max(i_list) or something along those lines.
