ATS509, Plot, Contour


This function serves as template from which you tackle one of the homework problems in Chapter 4 of the ATS/ESS 409/509 notes. It is based on the script ats_ch4_inset and contains many of the same commands.

Examples

The immediate example is to use the elevation data from Ch4 in the notes for ATS/ESS 409/509. It's provided as a save file. Download and save somewhere, but make note where. Then, jump over to IDL commmand line and:

IDL> RESTORE, pathToData = '' ;replace with the path to where you saved the data IDL> RESTORE, pathToData + 'n_al_elevation.sav'
You'll get three variables restored: data, lats, lons. Then run the function:
IDL> plt = ess_ch4_hw_contour(data, lats, lons)
You should get a fancy plot to pop up!
