Complex mapping is available in a standard add-on  package


CartesianMap[Tan, {-7Pi/16, 7Pi/16, Pi/16}, 
    {-7Pi/16, 7Pi/16, Pi/16}, ImageSize->400];

You grid the Gaussian space and look to what the points are transformed :

Clear[des, f];
des[f_, {xmin_, xmax_}, {ymin_, ymax_}] :=
  Module[{gr, x, y, lv, lh},
   gr = Table[{Re[f[x + I*y]], Im[f[x + I*y]]},
      {x, xmin, xmax, (xmax - xmin)/20},
      {y, ymin, ymax, (ymax - ymin)/20}];
    lv = Line /@ gr; lh = Line /@ Transpose[gr];
    Show[Graphics[{lv, lh}, AspectRatio ->
       Automatic]]; ]

You can try it on your example :

des[Tan[#1] & , {-(Pi/2) + 0.1, Pi/2 - 0.1},
  {-(Pi/2) + 0.1, Pi/2 - 0.1}]

Objet :  displaying images in the complex plane

Does any body have a favorite way of showing images in the complex
plane?  Suppose I want to represent the function Tan[z], where z = a +
bi, how would you display that image if you were trying to explain the
complex plane to your students?
