The Scatter 3D Chart Type

3D Scatter Charts are provided by the ScatterRenderableSeries3D type, which requires a PointMarker.

 

 

The ScatterRenderableSeries3D supports multiple pointmarkers, including:

3D Marker Types

Fast 2D Marker types

Declaring a 3D Scatter Series

To declare a 3D Scatter Series with PointMarker use the following code:

View
Copy Code
<s3D:SciChart3DSurface x:Name="SciChart"
                       Grid.Column="1"
                       BorderThickness="0"
                       WorldDimensions="200,100,200">
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.Camera>
        <s3D:Camera3D ZoomToFitOnAttach="True" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.Camera>
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.RenderableSeries>
        <s3D:ScatterRenderableSeries3D x:Name="ScatterSeries3D">
            <s3D:ScatterRenderableSeries3D.PointMarker>
                <s3D:EllipsePointMarker3D Fill="LimeGreen" Size="2.0" Opacity="1"/>
            </s3D:ScatterRenderableSeries3D.PointMarker>
        </s3D:ScatterRenderableSeries3D>
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.RenderableSeries>
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.XAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D GrowBy="0.1,0.1" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.XAxis>
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.YAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D GrowBy="0.1,0.1" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.YAxis>
    <s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ZAxis>
        <s3D:NumericAxis3D GrowBy="0.1,0.1" />
    </s3D:SciChart3DSurface.ZAxis>
</s3D:SciChart3DSurface>

 

Code Behind
Copy Code
private void OnLoaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs routedEventArgs)
{
    var xyzDataSeries3D = new XyzDataSeries3D<double>();
    for (var i = 0; i < Count; i++)
    {
        var x = DataManager.Instance.GetGaussianRandomNumber(5, 1.5);
        var y = DataManager.Instance.GetGaussianRandomNumber(5, 1.5);
        var z = DataManager.Instance.GetGaussianRandomNumber(5, 1.5);
        xyzDataSeries3D.Append(x, y, z);
    }
    ScatterSeries3D.DataSeries = xyzDataSeries3D;
    PointMarkerCombo.SelectedIndex = 0;
}

NOTE: You can also declare RenderableSeries using full MVVM (series ViewModels) using the SeriesBinding MarkupExtension. Please see MVVM DataSeries / RenderableSeries API for more details.

 

Coloring Individual Scatter Points

Scatter points may be colored or scaled individually using the PointMetada3D API. To do this, set a PointMetada3D instance at the data-point as follows:

 

Example Title
Copy Code
xyzDataSeries3D.Append(x, y, z, new PointMetadata3D(Colors.Blue, 1.0d));
