The title just about says it all...I have a list of evenly-spaced points in a csv file like this:

x,y,z
5,3,3.2
5,6,4.3
5,9,5.4
10,3,4
10,6,3.8
10,9,3.6
15,3,4.8
15,6,4
15,9,3.5

And I need a depth map or 3d plane of them. What is a good, simple program to use? Or, if it's not simple, how about some easy to follow instructions?

The standard program for this sort of thing is gnuplot. The home page is

www.gnuplot.info

and there is an introduction to 3D plotting of data here:
