I have some data that needs to be represented using the function ListDensityPlot, for example :

data = {{1, 1, 1}, {2, 3, 2}, {1, 4, 3}, {5, 1, 4}, {6, 4, 5}}
ListDensityPlot[data]

And this gives :

However, if we show the meshes using this code :

data = {{1, 1, 1}, {2, 3, 2}, {1, 4, 3}, {5, 1, 4}, {6, 4, 5}}
ListDensityPlot[data, Mesh -> All]

It shows this :

How can i specify ListDensityPlot to only Plot within the data point, and not plot the region delimited by the triangle {1,1},{2,3},{1,4} (the one on the left side} ?

Thanks in advance

  • $\begingroup$ Why is that triangle different than the other triangles where data is given at all of the vertices? $\endgroup$ – mjw Apr 8 at 16:10
  • $\begingroup$ because listdensityplot gives me a a polygon with 4 edges when the result is 5 edges. Same goes for my actual data, i have an n sided polygon when i actually want something like n+10 $\endgroup$ – mtmtciscoolwhenyoucanuseit Apr 8 at 19:30

Use the option RegionFunction

data = {{1, 1, 1}, {2, 3, 2}, {1, 4, 3}, {5, 1, 4}, {6, 4, 5}};

ListDensityPlot[data, Mesh -> All,
 RegionFunction ->
  (Not[{#1, #2} \[Element] Triangle[{{1, 1}, {2, 3}, {1, 4}}]] &)]

  • $\begingroup$ thank you very much ! it does exactly what i need it to do ! $\endgroup$ – mtmtciscoolwhenyoucanuseit Apr 8 at 19:05
