Surface Charts

A surface chart uses three axes (X, Y, and Z) to show how three independent sets of data interact. Each range of values along the X-axis is drawn in a different color to help you see similar values. Surface charts often give a good overall "feel" for 3-D data, and they may help viewers see overall patterns that are not very apparent with other chart types. Figure 12.20 shows a surface chart.
