Re: [R] Plotting contour & filled.contour in one graph

Hi, Michael:

          I'm sure the example would be clearer AND more interesting if you used real data AND accompanied it with a description like you gave below. To help motivate the usage, you could add a few words of interpretation, e.g., that if you want both z and zz less than 2, x and y must be in the upper right corner.

	  Thanks for this.

I'm able to overlay both graph, but the plots dimension did not overlap well on the same plots. How can I have both filled.contour and contour on the same graph? The commands that I have written are as follows:
