Plotting 2D XY values as a 3D radial contour plot

4 views (last 30 days)
I want to plot XY values, where X represents the values accross a radius (0 is the center of the distrbution) and Y represents the colors of a heatmap (like a Gaussian distribution). I want it to look like the image attached. Can anyone please tell me how to do this? Thanks!

my 2 cents suggestion
data = importdata('data.txt');
x =,1);
n = 200;
r = linspace(min(x),max(x),n);
z =,2);
zz = interp1(x,z,r);
figure, hold on
axis square
for ci = 1:200
theta = rand(n,1)*2*pi;
XX = r'.*cos(theta);
YY = r'.*sin(theta);
