Dymanical spectrum using plotly

Hi everyone

I want to plot time vs frequency as x and y axis , but also a third parameter that is specified by the intensity of plot at (x, y) rather (time, frequency) point . [Actually , instead of going up with third axis in 3D visualisation , I want something like a 2D plot , with amplitude of third axis governed by the intensity(color) value at (x,y) ] . Can you please suggest me something similar that I am looking for ! These plots are actually called dymanical spectrum .

PS : I am plotting in python offline . I have gone through https://plot.ly/python/ , but still I am not sure which will serve my purpose .

Please suggest something that will help me accomplish the above :slight_smile:

Any Suggestions ? :slight_smile:

Sorry for not responding. I’m not exactly what you’re trying to do here. Can share a link or a screenshot to help us out?

Thanks for the reply :slight_smile:
I want to visualize Time (in bins of e.g. 16 seconds), Frequency and Power as in Figure 3, third panel from the top of the paper attached(link below). X axis is Time, Y axis is Frequency and the power is color coded (the higher, the darker) . Actually there is a third dimension(apart from Time and Frequency which occupy normal x and y axis) shown with color coding: the darker the higher the amplitude of the third dimension ( the Power Density Spectrum )
