3D Surface Contour Plot using R, ggplot, and plotly


In and effort to make great looking visuals for our data, I am looking for code on an example of a 3D surface contour plot, built in R using ggplot and served into Power BI using plotly (so it is interactive, spin, zoom, etc). I have experience creating custom R visuals and installing them in Power BI so I am familiar with that process, but I am struggling with creating the code for the base 3D visual.

I am new to the R visual arena and any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Could you please clarify your question becuase it is too general?

Our team is glad to assist you in solving of questions regarding custom visuals development but we should understand what exact difficulties you faced with however, you should write code yourself.


Kind Regards,
