Dear MATLAB experts,
I want to use only the points corresponding to relatively high amplitudes? (e.g., try -10 to 0 dB or -20 to -10 dB or -30 to -20 on the normalized plots).
In attached imaging data output which veries from -45 to 0 dB.
I want to make 3 classes and plot data in with 3 classes and 3 colors.
.
I lookforward to receive your suggestions. I tried an approach but it gives logical output which is not suitable for my case.
Tahnk you!

Sorry, for my mistake.
I corrected the ranges (-10 to 0 dB or -20 to -10 dB or -30 to -20) in three classes now, as high, medium and low respectively.
Also the .mat file is attached for reference.
imagesc(x_vect, y_vect,20*log10(abs(S_VH)/max(max(abs(S_VH)))),[-45 0]),...
axis('equal'),axis('tight'),title('Output'),colormap('jet'),...
colorbar,set(gca,'FontSize',14),grid;
Please have a look, Thank you!

Try this:
intensity = 20*log10(abs(S_VH)/max(max(abs(S_VH))));
imagesc(x_vect, y_vect, intensity,[-45 0]);
axis('equal');
axis('tight');
title('Output');
cmap = [0,0,0;
1,0,0;
0,1,0;
0,0,1
]
cmap = 4×3
0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
colormap(cmap);
colorbar;
caxis([-40, 0]);
set(gca,'FontSize',14)
grid;

Much appreciated dear @Image Analyst
It's very fast and much accurate method. Thank you for your kind input and providing solution
