Hello All,
I have two vectors of the same size (X and Y) and another cell array contains 10 different labels (string) in it. So, basically for each label I have a set of X and Y. I like to plot Y vs. X in a 3D plot in a way that x-axis is horizontal, the y-axis is vertical, and z-axis goes into the screen. It would be great if I could do it like a surface so it shows hills and valleys.
Obviously, the x- and y- axes correspond to X and Y and z-axis shows the different labels.
Any idea how to do this?
Thank you!

How would you see the hills and valleys if the Z axis is into the screen? Z axis into the screen is a top-down (or bottom-up) view in which you cannot see the relative heights of anything.
You do not appear to have defined any z value.
