I have scatter plot shown in first image
what is the best method to reach the result in second image?

Abdelrahman, if you know the temperature for each of the coordinate given, you could create your own gradient of color.  If you have a matrix with the coordinates, for example:
coords = [1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8; 2 5 7 8 9 9 0 3];
then you may iterate through each point and designate it's own color depending on the resulting temperature. If the equation for the temperature is as follows:
T = x^2 +y/2 +1;
using a for loop, you can iterate through each point and plot with the correct color. Example code is shown below:
for i = 1:8 %number of coordinates
    hold on
    xi = coords(1,i);
    yi = coords(2,i);
    T =  xi^2 + yi/2 +1;
    if T > 10;
    elseif (T<10) && (T>8)
    elseif (T<8) && (T<4)
where the third argument of the ''plot'' function will be the color of the point and the marker type. You may separate the temperatures with more colors by using a RGB color values such as [1 0 0] for red and [1 1 1] for white.

Hi Abdelrahman. I am looking to do something similar in Matlab, so was wondering if you were ever able to get this issue resolved? And if so, what did you do? Thank you!
