#' A three dimensional plot function
#' 
#' The function persp is the base graphics function for creating wireframe surface plots.
#' adopted from http://www.r-bloggers.com/creating-surface-plots/
#' The persp function requires a list of x and y values covering the grid of vertical values
#'  which is specified as the z variable. The heights for the display are specified as a table
#'  of values which we saved previously as the object z during the calculations when the local
#'  trend surface model was fitted to the data.
#' 
#' @param x  
#' @param y a boolean variable deciding if the box should be horizontal 
#' @param z e if an outline 
#' @param xlab
#' @param ylab
#' @param zlab
#' @param phi 
#' @param theta The function arguments phi and theta are used to rotate the viewing angle of the surface
#' @param border border of lines
#' @param box should hte bounding box for the surface be displayed
#' @example 
#' set.seed(200)
#' n = 20
#' x <-  1:n  # rlnorm(n) +
#' x <- (x - min(x))/max(x)
#' x <- rep(x, n)
#' y <- n + 1:n # + (rnorm(n))*0.2*n
#' y <- rep(y, each = n)
#' z <- rowSums(expand.grid(x = rnorm(n)+1:n*2, y = 1:n + (rnorm(n, 1, 3))) )  # c("gray1", "gray99")
#' scheme = c("purple4", "blue4","blue1","green3", "yellowgreen","yellow2","sandybrown","red","darkred")
#' surf3d(x,y,z, type ="cm")
