Creating a new matrix basd on the index and value of an existing matrix

3 views (last 30 days)
Hi all,
I am new to matlab and I need your help on this.
I have a m x n matrix and I want to create a new m*n x 3 matrix in which the third column is the value from first matrix and the first two columns are the corresponding index of the value. For example, if the first matrix is [0.001 0.002 0.003 0.004; 0.005 0.006 0.007 0.008], I would like to make a matrix as [1 1 0.001; 1 2 0.002; 1 3 0.003; 1 4 0.004; 2 1 0.005; 2 2 0.006; 2 3 0.007; 2 4 0.008].
So how can I create the second matrix based on the index and value of first matrix?
Thanks in advance.

You could try the following code in matlab to get the desired result:
input=[0.001 0.002 0.003 0.004; 0.005 0.006 0.007 0.008];
[nrows ncols]=size(input); %stores the number of rows and columns in input
values=[]; %output matrix
for r=1:nrows
for c=1:ncols
values=[values;r c input(r,c)];% keep appending [r,c,input] to new columns
disp(values); %display the output
Hope this helps!
