Octoprint plugin: Bed Level visualizer - what to do

Hello, 

I am newbie with octoprint and I want to add something new to my printer, I installed Octoprint, and I have 2 issues, (I created separate threads).

I installed Bed Level Visualiser plugin as I have lot of issues with setting bed evenly, when printing large surfaces it happens in middle I have empty space (nozzle is too high) while at the corners the printed surface is wavy (nozzle too low). I wanted to use this plugin to show the data and made corrective actions, however after installing I dont know what to do 😀

I am using this plugin: 

https://plugins.octoprint.org/plugins/bedlevelvisualizer/

To enable this plugin for Prusa MK3S(+) put commands into Bed Level Visualiser settings onto field:

Looks good to me.  Better than what I get on my MK3S+.  Though I'm not worried about the variations on mine, mesh leveling has does a good job of taking that into account.  I'm getting good prints.
