3D Scatter Plots Redux
One weakness of Stata versus R is the lack of 3D graphing capabilities, in particular 3D scatter plots. However, with some modifications, Stata can indeed provide a suitable substitute for R in most graphical problems, as shown here (I use the infamous auto data set available in Stata with the sysuse command). The main weakness is that the xy and yz
planes do not have grid lines; nevertheless, this graph is another indication
that Stata's graphing capabilities are much stronger than many R users (and perhaps even Stata users)
realize. Here's the graph:
