ContourPlot example 2

Basic features of a ContourPlot object

This example demonstrates how to create the plot using HLU C, HLU FORTRAN library calls, or NCL. The example shows many of the most-used features such as selecting the contour fill type, setting line patterns, and controlling labels. The names of the example codes that create this plot are cn02c.c, cn02f.f, and cn02n.ncl.


Some of the resources are controlled through a resource file called cn02.res.

A detailed discussion about how to create the plot appears in the comments of the source code for the example.

Creating the plot using HLU C library calls

The HLU C program that generates this plot is called cn02c.c.

Creating the plot using HLU FORTRAN library calls

The HLU FORTRAN program that generates this plot is called cn02f.f.

Creating the plot using NCL

The NCL script that generates this plot is called cn02n.ncl.

The data

The data for this plot is generated by the example's source code.

How to run this example

This example can be created using a C program (cn02c.c), a FORTRAN program (cn02f.f), or an NCL script (cn02n.ncl). The examples are installed in the following locations:

The resource file for this example is located in:

You can copy this example and run it by typing "ng4ex cn02c", "ng4ex cn02f", or "ng4ex cn02n". 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.
