This question is a result of this one. I would like to make a surface plot using tikz/pgfplots using explicit colour and including legends. Is this possible? I have gone through the entire manual for pgfplots without seeing any examples of this combined. If I try to do it I get the error
! Package pgfplots Error: Sorry, color input!=colormap requires 'point meta=sym
but, I have set point meta to explicit symbolic and it works if I leave out the legend.
Here is the specific tikz file, right below the data is the legend entry which is commented out for it to work.
I would very much appreciate any feedback on this, it would be beyond cool to get it to work, but on the other hand it would be nice to know if it is not possible so I can let it go :)
