I am aware of Hexbin, which is a kind of histogram with hexagonal
cells. But what if my data comes in a Hex grid to start with?
I have a 2-D array probe with sensor elements arranged in a hexagonal
close packed geometry, plotting the sensor readings in normal x-y
(rectangular grid) directly will distort every other line of the
What would be a good way to plot such data?

Use the source, Luke!
Take a look at the source of Hexbin -- the answer must be there.
With luck, it's been factored in a way that you can use the drawing code
without the binning code.
