# Can I make the z-axis on the SmoothHistogram3D output show quantity rather than probability?

In SmoothHistogram3D, the x- and y-axes are in the form of the original input; 0 maps to 0 and 1 maps to 1, etc. However, the z-axis returns a probability rather than a quantity (or approximate quantity). (I think that's correct, at least.) Is there any way to make the z-axis return the number of points in that area? Maybe the probability times sample size? Thank you!

• maybe you can use SmoothKernelDistribution[data] and plot any function of its PDF; for example, Plot3D[Evaluate[ Length[data] PDF[SmoothKernelDistribution[data], {x, y}]], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -3, 3}]? – kglr Dec 31 '17 at 21:06

• Have you seen the third argument to SmoothHistogram3D? The Details & Options section of the documentation mentions the argument ”Intensity”. – Chip Hurst Jan 2 '18 at 6:03
