generating a 3d surface from from [x,y,z,c] matrix

1 view (last 30 days)
Dear all,
I have a dataset in a 8261x4 matrix where the first 3 columns represent x,y,z coordinate and the fourth column vlaues are ones as in the figure below:
thses are sunrays hitting a rectangular surface. the ones represent the power per ray. I want to generate a surface like in the next figure (it is a 2d plot using x&z only):
in the previous figure, the surface devidied by 25x25 (resolution) and the ones in the fourth column in the matrix were summed based on the grid resolution.
I include the y-axis because I have another data for tilted surfaces (3D), the end goal is to plot the flux map on multiple panels (shown in the figure below) and each panel will have a data like the martix I showed previously.
Thank you.

Hey Abdulelah,
I have made some approaches with density3D from:
should do the job for you. I have attached 2 images one with scatter3 and one with density 3D
posXvals = raydata1{:,1}
posYvals = raydata1{:,2};
posZvals = raydata1{:,3};

should also work yes. I have not thought about it.
