Polar surface plot in MATLAB 2

Posted by Doug Hull,

MATLAB does not have a polar surface plot built in. You can use a normal surface plot if you convert your polar data into Cartesian with the pol2cart command.

We also cover how to get rid of the edges on dense surface plots like this one by setting ‘edgecolor’ to ‘none’.

Nice video. Just a quick note: you can also easily take care of the dense grid using the command shading flat or shading interp In this last case, the shading of the surface plot will be interpolated.

Let me just try one more by including a link to the text I tried to submit a while ago (but for rejected by 1+5=6) http://math.aalto.fi/~apiola/matlab/opas/lyhyt/polcart.m
