contour lines

HI all,
I am new to this site, I have a question to whoever might help;
I have seen that it is possible to visualize contour lines over a set reference working plane without it necessarily being an object or surface, ie a desk. It would be great to be able to visualize analyses over reference planes throughout a room or a space.
Does anybody have a clue how could I do this?

Thanks a lot,
Simon

unless you are a virtuoso of radiance scripting you may do like this:

use rtrace, save point location (x y z) and value or just laminate two files...

import in any data visualized you may have (opendx, mayavi, paraview, excel(!), matlab....)

if you need the lines and the 3d probably the easiest is paraview.
although my favourite is opendx....

paraview, mayavi, opendx are all free.
ciao
G.

Ciao giulio,
immagino tu sia italiano come me....

perdonami , ma sono un principiante in radiance ed ho capito poco e niente della tua mail.
ti dico cio' che so invece...
di solito per fare simulazioni di daylight con radiance passo attraverso l'interfaccia di ecotect,( questo dovrebbe rassicurarti sulla mia virtuosita' in radiance..), per esempio posso visualizzare una reference plane reimportando i dati dalla simulazione fatta in radiance.
con radiance invece riesco solo a vedere contour lines sulle superfici della stanza invece che su una reference plane.
che posso fare?
ti ringrazio
Simone

se mi mandi la tua email ti spiego.

just have a look on google for paraview.
then look in ecotect manual for saving data from calculation...
the try to used the exported data with paraview.
(also ecotect does quite a bit on the visualisation side... )

ciao
G.
