2D color plot from 3D data

How I can do it?

In the images there is an example, made with Tecplot:

Bruno, thanks for the suggestion.

I have obtained the result in the image, using the "warp by vector" filter:

Then I can use "Extract Cells By Region" to remove the deformed cells in the area in which the warp filter cuts the geometry, and a "Clip" to remove the irregular boundaries. The final result is this:
