Basemap - plot on a polar figure

Hello,

Is it possible to have basemap plot in the usual way on a polar-projection
subplot?
I want to do something like this:
fig = plt.figure(figsize)
ax = fig.add_subplot(111, polar=True)
m = Basemap(...)
m.drawcoastlines(...)
etc.

The reason I want to have a polar-projection plot is because I want to add
concentric circles to the subplot using rgrids.

Thanks,

jtamir

You can draw lines of latitude with the drawparallels method - these are concentric circles on a polar projection.
