Your question is a bit vague and does not supply anything like a
reproducible example, so it is hard to answer.

The cover of the book (Baddeley et al.) that Marcelino de la Cruz Rot
has referred to, in the thread that you hijacked, displays a plot that
might be something like what you want.  The code for producing this plot
can be found in the online supplement to that book at:


For your convenience here are the relevant lines of code:

     fit     <- ppm(bei ~ polynom(grad, elev, 2), data=bei.extra)
     lamhat  <- predict(fit)
     col.lam <- topo.colors
     col.pts <- 1
     M       <- persp(bei.extra$elev, colin=lamhat,
                      colmap=col.lam, shade=0.4, theta=-55,
                      phi=25, expand=6, box=FALSE,
                      apron=TRUE,  visible=TRUE, main="")
                perspPoints(bei, Z=bei.extra$elev, M=M,
                            pch=".", col=col.pts, cex=1.25)
