# Scatter points with a colormap based on distances

Hi! I have a first set of N points (each of them is identified by the three coordinates) and I have projected them on a plane (identified by a,b,c,d parameters). For each point, I calculated the distance from the plane and the coordinates of the point projected on the plane. Now I'd like to plot (scatter) the projected points on the plane according to a color map that accounts for the calculated distance..any suggestion? Thank you!

You can use scatter3.
x = rand(10,1) ;
y = rand(10,1) ;
z = rand(10,1) ;
d = rand(10,1) ;
scatter3(x,y,z,[],d,'filled')
colormap(jet)
colorbar
