Hi,
I am struggling to create a filled contour plot with XYZ data -- I see a lot of related questions to this on the forum, however the solutions I have tried all have returned an empty figure (with nothing plotted). Both ndgrid and meshgrid are returning a matrix with a bunch of NaN elements (this is supposed to be my 11x11 'Z' matrix); I cannot figure out the problem. I have attached a screenshot of the grid that is returned by the aforementioned commands.
The data I am trying to make the contour plot with is also shown below, as is the code I have been trying. It is also worth mentioning that I have tried the following previous answers to no avail (which my provided code is based off of):
Lastly, a screenshot of the empty graph is also attached. If I can provide anything else to make helping easier, please let me know.
I am a novice in MATLAB, and would really appreciate any help regarding this.

You don't have enough data -- to use contourf, you must have size(Z) = x by y points -- you've got
>> whos x y z
Name Size Bytes Class Attributes
x 11x1 88 double
y 11x1 88 double
z 12x1 96 double
where only have one more z value than x and y -- you need 121.
And, as can be see with
plot3d(x,y,z(1:11))
shows essentially a trace along the diagonal of the xy plane; there's no information scattered anywhere else from which to try to interpolate to fill in something. You just don't have enough data from which to create a contour.

If anyone is interested in the resolution, I found success using the pcolor command in MATLAB to create a pseudocolor plot (instead of contour plot).

This will work, but I don't think the interpolation of the Z data fits your needs.
