smoother plots - pcolormesh

Hello,

I'm trying to plot 0.5x0.5 global data. I'm currently using
pcolormesh. I have a log color scale and haven't been able to use
contourf succesfully for some reason. If I use imshow, it seems to be
too 'bleedy'.

Is there a method for plotting that does some more 'smoothing'
interpolation of the data than pcolormesh? Is there something I'm
doing wrong that contourf doesn't work with log data?

Thanks,
john

imshow has a number of different interpolation methods you can try:
