Hello List,

I am trying to use the pylab.contourf(X,Y,Z,100) function but I would like to mplot a 1 dimensional heatmap instead of a 2 dimensional heatmap, Perhaps “contourf” is not the solution but I do like these plots.

Any suggestions?

TIA

An example image of what you would like to see might be useful.

Hello List,This is a follow up to my question. trying to plot a 1D heatmap using contourf. Currently I am using pylab.contourf(X,Y,Z,100) but am wondering if this can be done in a 1d graph similar to the figures below/attached?

what are you using right now, something like that?

a = np.random.random(70)

x = np.empty([10,a.shape[0]])

x[:,:] = a

pl.contourf(x)

you might want to suppress ticks on the y-axis.
