Noob confusion: Pcolor

Hi all,
I am a very new user to both python and matplotlib so please beware that my
questions might be a real no-brainer. Here goes:

first two columns are the x and y positions while the third is the intensity
at the position (xi, yi). I would like to produce a colour map of the
intensity as a function of x and y positions. Numerous tries with pcolor
have got me nowhere. I constantly get an error message saying "Too many

Is my use of pcolor correct? If not, what should I use?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot! :smiley:
