Plotting non-rectangular data on maps

I've got a 2-D array of values that I'd like to plot onto a map with Basemap. The latitude and longitudes for each point are stored in their own 2-D array that matches that of the values. Can some one help with how to do this? Looks like basemap requires a square and uniform set of data to plot?

Thanks!

Orion: There's an example of this in the examples directory called 'ccsm_popgrid.py'. Have a look at that, and if you have questions let us know.
