Hi,

I have a 1d array Z that unfortunately contains information about a two

dimensional surface. The mapping is nontrivial (i.e. Z is not just a

sequence of column or row information that I could reshape) but

homogenous (i.e. there is a rectangular grid and Z contains data for

each vertex). The x and y coordinates for each datapoint in Z are

contained in separate arrays X and Y.

A simple pyplot.contour(X, Y, Z) refuses to plot the data because Z is

not 2d ("TypeError: Input z must be a 2D array").

What's the best way to plot this data?

Is there an easy way to reshuffle the elements of Z so that they are in

either row-column or column-row order?

Best,

-Nikolaus
