Im trying to create a precipitation contour plot using imshow() and basemap.
Id like to draw the imshow() plot so that it overlays the filled continents, yet NOT the continental outlines.
unfortunately, it appears that imshow()'s graphics are always drawn before everything else, so its 'zorder' argument is useless with basemap.
the imshow() output is always at the bottom layer, with everthing else being overlaid on it & covering it up.
is there a work-around for this, so that I can layer imshow()'s output between my calls to 'basemap.fillcontinents()' and 'basemap.drawcoastlines()'???
