# polar coordinates?

```I don't think what I am currently doing is heat maps, but at least from
what I have read, they could be adapted to "visualiztions of PI."

Toward that end I decided to put a link to the video that inspired me, a
link to where I got the graphics.py package (or at least where I think I
got it), and the actual program I currently have.

Numberphile video about visualiztion of PI:

Where I got graphics.py, the graphics package I am currently using (this
is a link to the actual file I am using:
tmcsp.wartburg.edu/zelle/pyhon/graphics.py

The program I currently have working.  It is a bit simplistic, it does
not vary the size of the grid that is made, etc.  It also looks like to
me that I did not really update my comments that described how big I was
making my dots to match how big I was actually making my dots.  Also,
simply cutting and pasting it, even if you have graphics.py in the
"python path" may not work, since sometimes usenet seems to mess with
spaces.:
