In this Excel tutorial, you will learn about the creation of a wireframe contour chart.
How to insert Wireframe Contour Chart
Let us start by creating the following sample data.
Next we will start by creating a 3D surface graph as follows:
The graph will look like this:
What is Contour Chart
It is typically used to show relationships between large amounts of data that may otherwise be difficult to see.
Color bands in a Surface chart:
- Do not represent the data series
- Indicate the difference between the values
A Wireframe 3-D Surface chart is a 3D Surface chart shown without color on the surface. This chart shows only the lines. Such a contour plot is not easy to read, but it can plot large data sets much faster than a 3D Surface chart.
Now let us change it to the wireframe 3D chart:
In the same way, you are able to create a countour map in Excel.
