[Paraview] How to see 3D Surface

Hi David,

Thanks for the response.  Yes, I am trying to make a terrain map, and 
yes I have tried the Delauney filters.  I have a 2D unstructured mesh, 
with several fields defined at the grid points.  When I view the data I 
get a 2D contour map, but what I want is a non-colored 3D representation 
of f(x,y), with grid lines, where f is the height above my 2D x-y 
plane.  Does that make sense?

Someone else just responded saying that vitesse means "speed" in french, 
but I'm still unsure what the command is supposed to do.
