Hi, All,

I have a bunch of 3D points with coordinations in a dict

pointset = {

(x1,y1):z1,

(x2,y2):z2,

...

}

It seems I have to

1. fire a loop to change each item and convert the whole dictionary into arrays;

x = []

y = []

for i in pointset.items():

x.append(i[0][0])

y.append(i[0][1])

2. send x and y ranges to meshgrid

3. loop again to put z values into proper positions

4. use plot_surface()

Is there any quicker ways to do that?

And we know that for points with coordination, scatter must be the

simplest way to visualize them.

Is there any trick to convert a scatter graph into a surface picture directly?

Appreciation for any ideas.
