All three dimensions of a 3D data object are shown in a cube in the
3D data view. The axes
of the cube hold the respective data dimensions. The top view provides
a fixed view from the positive end of the z-axis along the z-axis of the
object. Minima and maxima of the data object are color coded and can be
distinguished by contour lines optionally.
The top view might be zoomed in the x,y-plane to provide a perfect view
to data details. It is also possible to show
2D cuts, which hold two dimensional slices along the x,z-plane and
y,z-plane at the current mouse pointer position. These slices are shown
in separate 2D data views on top of the
top view optionally. Slices can be extracted
and stored as new 2D data objects.
Can I save my preferred 3D data view options?
will automatically save the last used 3D data view options. Therefore
the next 3D object will be opened with the last used display options.
This way the data will always be opened in your favorite 3D display mode.
The following figure shows a typical top view of a pseudo 3D data object
with a set of two 2D data objects extracted from the x, z plane and the
y, z plane. This is a measurement of cannabis extract on a thin layer
