I am getting stuck with figuring out how to use Tooltip for a ListPlot3D. Basically I have a list of values for the 3D plot (no table or function) and would like to have the Tooltip return the x, y and z coordinates for the point.

Here is the code for the Plot that I would like to have "tooltipped":

correlationMatrix = {{1., -0.312997, -0.23282, 
  0.21541, -0.492404, -0.429369, -0.529716, -0.139237,

    $\begingroup$ How can you make a ListPlot3D without a table? Could you provide a simple code example of what you mean to do? $\endgroup$ – Jens Jul 2 '12 at 18:53
  • $\begingroup$ Good suggestion. I added the data and the code. $\endgroup$ – FredrikD Jul 2 '12 at 19:09

Show[
  ListPlot3D[correlationMatrix,
    AxesStyle -> Thickness[0.01], 
    AxesLabel -> {"X", "Y", "Corr(X,Y)"}, 
    AxesEdge -> {{-1, -1}, {-1, -1}, {-1, -1}}, 
    ColorFunction -> "BrightBands"], 
  ListPointPlot3D @ Tooltip @ Flatten[
    MapIndexed[Flatten@{#2, #1} &, correlationMatrix, {2}], 1]
]
