2D polar surface plot


After reading documentations and the
matplotlib example I haven’t found a way to graph the plot I want.

I am trying to display a radar video (one
turn of the antenna at a time). As such I need to plot a polar surface in 2D
with a colormap indicating the video intensity.

My data input is simply a file where
intensity are logged along rho and theta

The nearest example I found in the
documentation is the 3d-surface plot but I need to have it in 2D

Can you provide me with some idea/pointers ?

Has it been already tried ?

Best Regards,
