This question already has an answer here:

I need to produce some plots that look like these but I'm not sure what they are called in mathematica, can anyone identify them ?


Update: I want to plot triples of the form (xvalue, yvalue, intensity) in a graph like that

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Try DensityPlot! –  PlatoManiac Mar 27 '13 at 15:17
DensityPlot appears to be for plotting functions, I have triples that I want to plot corresponding to (xvalue, yvalue, intensity) Is there a function for doing this ? –  Aaron Kalair Mar 27 '13 at 15:24
It's probably ArrayPlot. There's also MatrixPlot, Image, Graphics[Raster[...]], and ListDensityPlot (which can interpolate). For triples you need ListDensityPlot or see this –  Szabolcs Mar 27 '13 at 15:26

1 Answer 1

It might be ListDensityPlot with an InterpolationOrder of 0 and a black/white ColorFunction
