MapPlot example 2

How to control individual map areas

This example can be created using HLU C or HLU FORTRAN library calls or NCL. It demonstrates how to highlight and emphasize certain areas of a map through the map projection, limits, and masking areas. The names of the source files for this example are mp02c.c, mp02f.f, and mp02n.ncl.


This module discusses how to create this example using HLU function calls and a resource file. The resource file used in this example is called mp02.res.

A detailed discussion of how this example works appears in its source code.

Creating the plot using HLUs

The HLU C program that generates this plot is called mp02c.c.

Creating the plot using HLU FORTRAN library calls

The HLU FORTRAN program that generates this plot is called mp02f.f.

Creating the plot using NCL

The NCL script that generates this plot is called mp02n.ncl.

The data

This plot does not use any external data.

How to run this example

This example can be generated using a C program (mp02c.c), a FORTRAN program (mp02f.f), or an NCL script (mp02n.ncl). The examples are installed in the following locations:

You can copy this example and run it by typing "ng4ex mp02c", "ng4ex mp02f" or "ng4ex mp02n". A copy of the source file and resource file will be placed in your current working directory. The source code will be compiled and automatically run for you.
