Hello, I have a Matrix of dimensions (2xN) which consists of 2 dimensional Cartesian coordinates and I would like to create a heat map of this. Do you know any way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Without more detail, I would just point you to the image() command. Is that helpful?

What do you want a heat-map of? A third variable? The densiy of the scatter points?

With heat map I mean a plot where e.g. red color indicates that a lot of points from the matrix are in a certain neighbourhood and blue would mean that all the other coordinates are far away.
