VectorDensityPlot

VectorDensityPlot[{{vx,vy},s},{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}]
generates a vector plot of the vector field {vx,vy} as a function of x and y, superimposed on a density plot of the scalar field s.

VectorDensityPlot[{vx,vy},{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}]
takes the scalar field to be the norm of the vector field.

VectorDensityPlot[{{vx,vy},{wx,wy},,s},{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}]
plots several vector fields.

VectorDensityPlot[,{x,y}reg]
takes the variables {x,y} to be in the geometric region reg.
