hi, friends I am kind of stuck here. I am trying to plot some radar data. I have managed to average it over a single point. now i have this mat file.(attached)
first-row date and time are given after the word MRR. the second row is height in meters and the third row is rainfall in millimeters.
I have attached one .jpg file which is generated through instrument software.I want to plot the same thing but using Matlab.
second question:(also, I am curious if I could limit the height say up to 1000 meter. ?) I am working on this thing from last week but not able to complete it yet.

below code might help you. you can ignore this code if you have another logic to read that data.
t = char(data(1:3:end));
t = datetime(t(:, 5:16), 'InputFormat', 'yyMMddHHmmss');
rf = cellfun(@(x) str2num(x(3:end)), data(3:3:end), 'UniformOutput', 0);
rf = cellfun(@(x) [x nan(1, 31-numel(x))], rf, 'UniformOutput', 0);
rf = num2cell(cell2mat(rf), 1);
ht = cellfun(@(x) str2num(x(3:end)), data(2:3:end), 'UniformOutput', 0);
ht = cellfun(@(x) [x nan(1, 31-numel(x))], ht, 'UniformOutput', 0);
ht = num2cell(cell2mat(ht), 1);

x = 1:length(t) ;
y = unique(cell2mat(ht)) ;
Z = cell2mat(rf) ;
[X,Y] = meshgrid(x,y) ;
pcolor(X,Y,Z')
