Hazen, Thank you for the suggestion. That worked a lot better (I'm using Java). The trouble I have is with specifying the world coordinates of the viewport and then setting up the window for 3D in a programmatic way, which is what led to my original problem. What strategy would you (or others) suggest for letting plwind and plw3d float based on the supplied data. Thanks. Michael C. Robbeloth Consultant Data Science Automation Inc.

The Python program below should give you roughly the same thing, though I'm not sure exactly which feature of gnuplot plot you were trying to recreate. The trick to getting the box at the bottom of the plot is that you have draw it yourself.
