I would like to use
ListPlot3D to make a 3D plot using a file containing the following information (4 columns):
x, y, f(x,y), w(x,y).
y are the coordinates in the Cartesian framework,
f(x,y) is some function that depends on
w(x,y) is another function that represents weights of the function
f. So for each data point in
f(x,y) we have the corresponding weight
To plot the function f(x,y) I do the following:
f = Import["file.dat", "Table"]; ListPlot3D[f]
and that is fine.
Now I want to have this plot but with colours determined by the weights, i.e. for each point in "f" I would like to have the colour determined by the value of "w". Suppose "w" takes values from 0 to 1, I want that 0 corresponds to "blue" and 1 corresponds to "red", and all values in-between is the gradient between "blue" and "red". For example, if I have a row in "file.dat": 0, 1, 10, 0.5, I would like a 3D plot where at (x,y)=(0,1) the value of the function is f=10 and the colour of this point is 50% blue and 50% red. Can you suggest please how to do this in Mathematica?
