3D Scatterplots - Ternary Graph

In this type of ternary graph, the triangular coordinate systems are used to plot four (or more) variables (the components X, Y, and Z, and the responses V1, V2, etc.) in three dimensions (ternary 3D scatterplots or surface plots). Here, the responses (V1, V2, etc.) associated with the proportions of the component variables (X, Y, and Z) in a ternary graph are plotted as the heights of the points.

For more information about ternary representation of data, see Ternary Plots.
