## Plot 3D surface.

Greeting All

I used the code I attached and I got the 3D surface, the problem is it starts from -40 t0 40, while in the real data the minimum day was 5,

Who can I make the plot start from 5 and Up

Thanks

By using these ideas and the associated SAS code, you can truncate the surface or contour plot, as you requested.

## Re: Plot 3D surface.

You are plotting the PREDICTED surface, which is not constrained by the range of the data. The predicted surface is evaluated on a rectangular regions [min(RH), max(RH)] x [min(Temp), max[Temp)], and this model has a minimum predicted value when (RH, Temp) are both small.

By default, PROC RSREG extends the rectangular domain by 10% beyond the range of the data. You can use the EXTEND=0 option to tell it not to extrapolate beyond the data range. The code would look like this:

``````proc rsreg data=d plots=(ridge surface(EXTEND=0));
model Day=RH Temp / lackfit;
ridge max;
run;

proc rsreg data=d plots =surface(3d EXTEND=0);
model Day = Temp RH;
ods select 'Temp * RH = Pred';
run;``````

You have another option, which you might prefer. The steps are:

1. Score the model on a regular grid and use the OUT= option to write the predicted values to a data set.

2. Use a DATA step to set the predicted values to missing when the predicted values are less than zero (or 5, if you prefer)

3. Use PROC SGRENDER to generate the surface plot. Only the nonmissing predicted values will be displayed as part of the surface.

Hi Rick

Many thanks for your help, I used the code you apply, it makes a small difference, but still start from below the 0.

Greeting Rick

Is there a chance to optimize three variables by adding a code for that?

Best regards
