Commenter MP has been producing very impressive spatial plots using a Matlab script. I posted his movie of recent UAH LT temperatures here. In comments below you'll find the stills, and a wealth of other images linked by MP.
He has also done plots of GISS results, using GISS gridded data. I'll show below the jump his plots, and my spherical harmonics based reconstruction for comparison.
Here is MP's plot for July 2011. The two below are the GISS results, and are therefore directly comparable, with due allowance for the different color schemes.
Because it's grid-based, a larger interpolation length (1200km) fills more cells but lowers the resolution. For comparison, here is the TempLS plot, which is based on a spherical harmonics least squares fit, and so has even more smoothing:
MP has also posted UAH
and RSS zonal plots.
Here is his full set of UAH monthly maps from Jan 2009 to Jul 2011.
