IDL Surface Tutorial - Introduction  
IDL's direct graphics has two main ways to plot a 3D representation of 2D data: the SURFACE and SHADE_SURF procedures. Both of these routines are very flexible and can be extended via the SHADES keyword to produce plots where the position of a data point is determined by one array and its colour by a second. Both routines can also be made to work in the z-buffer so that two or more intersecting surfaces can be displayed on the same plot.
