The Grid Surface chart displays a surface with user-defined elevation values for each data point and with X and Y coordinates which form a rectangular grid.
Wireframe Surface Chart
This image demonstrates wire frame surface rendering. The surface filling is disabled and the frame style is "Mesh" - this way only mesh lines are displayed.
Surface Chart with texture
The Grid surface series supports a FillEffect for the whole surface. The user can apply images, gradients, advanced gradients and patterns to the surface, as well as modify material properties like Specular Color, Emissive Color and Shininess.
Projected Contour Chart
This example demonstrates a contour chart displayed with the Grid Surface Series. Below - the surface is rendered in flat mode and above - with the actual surface elevation.
Grid Surface with empty data points
Empty data points is a feature allowing data points to be specified with no value supplied. These data points are not rendered by the chart thus allowing empty shifts in a dimension scale.
This image demonstrates a contour chart displayed with the Grid Surface Series. The chart uses orthogonal projection with camera elevation of 90 degrees, the lighting is disabled and the surface is rendered in flat mode.
Here the Grid Surface chart is used to represent waves.
