I have a matrix (txt file, named "try")) as the one in the picture (left), with different columns (A to C). This data can be plotted using function plot (picture in the middle).
Since the .txt file is a struct, this is the code I use :
a=importdata('try.txt');; %This does not take into account the first row of letters I normalized the data to 1 (see graph)
My question is: is there a way to plot this as from a "top" view? Something similar as in the rigth picture, with point of different color intensity according to the y value (between 0 and 1), and with the label of the first row of letter. Is it possible to do something like that? I hope that the principle is clear.
Thanks for the help!

Thanks Adam!
imagesc is a good results of what I can represent. Is it possible to show the "labels" of the column in the plotted map (A, B and C in the example)?
Other question: is it possible to change the colors of the colorbar (e.g. from white to red instead of blue to red as default) ?

Continuing from the comments under the question.
Using imagesc, you can change the tick labels using
set(gca, 'XTick', 1:3, 'XTickLabel', {'A' 'B' 'C'})
and you can change the colormap
or any other colormap option.
