ContourPlot examples

This module is a graphical index to the HLU and NCL NCAR Graphics examples that generate contour plots. Click on one of the example graphics below to link to information about how to create the graphic and how to access the code and data that were used to generate the plot.

  • cn01: Drawing a contour plot using default settings.
  • cn02: Basic features of a ContourPlot object.
  • cn03: Overlaying a ContourPlot on a LogLinPlot.
  • cn04: Multiple contour plots on a single frame.
  • cn05: Creating a map and contour overlay animation.
  • cn06: Creating contour plots of netCDF temperature data.
  • cn07: Creating contour plots of netCDF geo-potential height data.
  • cn08: ContourPlot animation of vertical temperature profile.
