Hi I am trying to generate coloured contour plots from a certain set of data I have However one of my requirements is that the underlying shape of the plot should be that of the geometry which I have. In other words I want a coloured contour plot on an arbitrary underlying shape and not a quadrilateral. Currently I am using: Show[Graphics[({Hue[hued11[[#1 + 1, 1]]*2], PointSize[0.02], Point[finpos[[#1 + 1]]]} &) /@ Range[0, rmgpt - 1, 1], AspectRatio -> Automatic]] This plots the data points at the co-ordinates given in the array "finpos" and gives them a colour specified by the array "hued11". However the plot is not continous and made up of a series of points. Is it possible to generate a continous plot having arbitrary shape and not a square or a cube contour plot?
