Homework Help: Plotting Multiple 2D graphs in mathematica

  1. Apr 17, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have multiple 1D data sets, lets call them data1, data2, data3, etc. Each data set has the same number of entries. Each one is either a row or a column (I can just use Transpose[...], so same] and when I use the ListPlot[] function, I get a graph where the vertical axis is the value in the data set and the horizontal axis is the numerical position.

    i.e. if data 1 = {5 26 17 9...}, the graph would have points at (1,5), (2,26), (3,17), ...

    What I want to do is plot data1, data2, etc on a 3d plot to see how the data evolves. By introducing another horizontal axis, I could plot data 1 on the y=1 plane (with the x axis being the order and the z axis being the intensity) and data2 on the y=2 plane, etc.

    2. Relevant equations
    When I try ListPlot3D[{data1,data2,data3...}], I end up plotting all the data points on the same y axis. I want to data1 on the y=1 plane, data2 on the y=2 plane, etc.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried just rewriting the entire data set as such:

    data1_3D= Table[{i,1,data1[]},{i,1,Length[data1]}] *I didn't actually put an underscore. just so you could see my numbering system here.
    data2_3D= Table[{i,1,data2[]},{i,1,Length[data2]}]

    and just plotting these, but this didnt work.

    Additionally, I'd love to use the interpolation function to connect the dots along the y-axis and x axis. There is no ListLinePlot3D function that I know of. I think {Mesh -> All} might work, although I'm trying to get this data set plotted first.
