plotting wind-speed time series (was: What kind of chart should I use?)

Saw this:

Since I am not interested in wind direction, may be I can use stacked bar-chart. Still, how would I tie plot_data with it though?

Regards,

Subject: [Matplotlib-users] What kind of chart should I use?

Hi list,

I have a set of time series data which is year's worth of
wind speed at a particular place (one data point per minute).
I want to see how wind speed spreads throughout the day. I
can do a scatter char with 24 hours of the day vs wind speed
but then I end up with something that's not too useful (too
many data points). What's more interesting is to present the
data as a time / wind speed / frequency plot.

The kind of plot shown in image_interp.py looks interesting.
Is there a way to combine the capability of plot_date and
imshow? If so, may be I can have hour of the day vs
wind-speed with the color be a function of the data frequency.

Thanks,

I don't do what you are trying to do, but I do some other weather plots,

grab "windrose.py" at the end of this thread

I've not used it but I think it is what you are looking for: a
windrose module for python.
