Yes, this wouldn't be too hard.  Modify:

  t_h_tuple = new RealTupleType( time, height);

to:

  RealType third = new RealType("third");
  t_h_tuple = new RealTupleType( time, height, third);

Modify:

  float[][] point_vals = new float[][]{{-3.0f, -1.5f, 0.0f, 1.5f, 3.0f,},
                                       {0.0f, 33.75f, 45.0f, 33.75f, 0.0f,} };

to:

  float[][] point_vals = new float[][]{{-3.0f, -1.5f, 0.0f, 1.5f, 3.0f,},
                                       {0.0f, 33.75f, 45.0f, 33.75f, 0.0f,},
                                       {0.0f, 1.0f, 2.0f, 3.0f, 4.0f,} };

Or put into point_vals whatever array of values you want to
display.

If you want to display more or less than 5 points you'll
need to modify:

  index_set = new Integer1DSet(index, 5);

Then modify:

  display = new DisplayImplJ2D("display1");

to:

  display = new DisplayImplJ3D("display1");

and add:

  ScalarMap thirdMap = new ScalarMap(third, DisplayZAxis);
  display.addMap( thirdMap );

That should do it.

Cheers,
Bill
