2D Intensity Plots of Titan

matplotlib+basemap may do it for you. I'm not sure how much of it's hard coded for the Earth though...

I am trying to map the surface of Saturn's largest moon, Titan for a summer research project. As a rough draft, I would like to plot the temperature (colored red) at the longitude(x) and latitude(y) coordinates. My data file is tab delimited in three columns (x,y,T). I am also missing some x,y locations, which I would like to leave blank.

As a final report, I would like the data point to be able to take on different geometries (circle, hexagon, arbitrary shape, etc) and different sizes as well as be able to overlap with neighboring data points. Finally, I would like to be able to plot this not on a rectangular cartesion coordinate system, but on a planetographic (global projection) coordinate system.

I've spent two days trying everything from gnuplot, matlab, matplotlib and others trying to do this, but to no avail. Any suggestions would be very welcomed.
