Shifting the z-position of imagesc() when used along with surf

23 views (last 30 days)
I want to create a surf plot along with an image on the same object as given below;
surf(x,y,z);hold on
By default the z position of the imagesc is at z=0, which does not serve my purpose. I want to shift the location either upwards or downwards in z-direction. I understand that imagesc is a 2-D plot object and it does not have a z- axis. Is there any work around to shift the position of the imagesc along the z axis of the surf plot?

hgtransform group with a transformation matrix that is a z translation, and parent the imagesc to that.
However I would suggest rescale() and then warp()

I recommend the warp() version: it creates a surface() object, and that object will not disappear if you view it at an angle (as happens for image objects.)
