This may be a dumb question, however i have been scratching my head trying to figure out how to plot a 3 dimensional plot with with a colour map different from the elevation(Z) parameter.


An example of this done in Matlab would be


[X,Y,Z] = peaks(30);

C=Z'% could be anything other than Z as long as it has the same dimensions



axis([-3 3 -3 3 -10 5])



Is this possible with matplotlib '0.99.1'


If so how do i go about doing this  is there some sample code?
