[R] image function with large matrices

Hi, I am new to R. 

With the command below, I generated the image on the left in R.
On the right, with the same data (x,y,z in columns), I generated a similar
image in SigmaPlot.

If you look at the R image, one can see that the resolution is low.  Even
though the data
represents a 131 X 131 matrix, there appears to be only approximately 40 X
40 pixels.

I was wondering how I could generate an image in R that looks similar to the
to the one I produced
SigmaPlot.  Should I use a different function, such as heatmap or contour? 
I noticed that the interp function does not work with the heatmap function. 
Should I convert my xyz column data into a matrix to make things simpler?

There are also a few other questions that I have that could be helpful for
me in the future in regards to
legends, automated scaling, grids, and labeling, but I think I may ask those
at a later time or figure that out on my own.  But if you have some helpful
tips, please let me know.
