Displaying 3D data as 2D + color ?

I got numerical 3D data (x,y,z coordinates) which are NOT lying on a
grid, but are scattered. I would like to plot them as 2D with the color
of the points indicating the z value. It seems the standard Mathematica plotting
commands can't do that :-(
But I'm sure there must be a package for this problem.

Any hint is welcomed,
