Hi Lucky,

perhaps the package



PolarPlot[r,  {t, tmin, tmax}],
"generates a polar plot of the radius r as a function of angle t."

may help you.

Betreff: [mg49468] Plotting a contour plot with cylindrical co-ordinates

I have a set of data which corresponds to points on a circle. I have
these values as a function of r and theta. Is there a way of plotting
this in Mathematica? The ContourPlot function requires x and y
Please help if you know.
