I have strange missing parts in contour plot of values using following code:

points = SpherePoints[100];
values = RandomReal[{0.000015831726713187197, 
    0.000017509814943585526}, 100];
data = MapThread[Append, {points, values}];
ListSliceContourPlot3D[data, "CenterSphere", PlotLegends -> Automatic]

As you can see there are many missing parts (holes) in plot:

,Would you please help.

  • $\begingroup$ You get holes because you have not enough points. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 21, 2022 at 12:27
  • $\begingroup$ actually I tried it with 1000 points, the same problem appeared! $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 21, 2022 at 12:30
  • $\begingroup$ You are right. I would report it to: [email protected] $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 21, 2022 at 12:47

This is a similar problem to this. A workaround is to set a looser region:

, ImplicitRegion[1 - 0.2 < x^2 + y^2 + z^2 < 1 + 0.2, {x, y, z}]
, PlotLegends -> Automatic]

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you, but I am afraid "the sphere radius" interferes in the resulted contours, the result of ListSliceContourPlot3D. How I can be sure that radius is exactly equals to 1? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 22, 2022 at 19:13
