3DField converts your data into contour maps and surface plots. It creates a 3D map or a contour chart from the scattered points, numerical arrays or other data sets. All aspects of 2D or 3D maps can be customized to produce exactly the presentation you want. The software component SWLib and others are available. Take a look on 3DSurface multiplatform application.

How create contour map:

If you have the scattered points data set:
X Y Value or Z
26070 46750 4.6750 Point_1
27890 37640 3.7640  
... ... ...  
24080 36560 3.6560 "Point 23"
Open that file in 3DField contour map 3d 01
Draw the boundary by mouse or load it ( if it is necessary) contour map 3d 02
Double-click on "Color fill contours" tree item of the Map list contour map 3d 03
Click on 3D OpenGL View button at the toolbar contour map 3d 04
If you need 4D interpolation in volume, look at 3DFieldPro contour map 3d 05
