cnLabelDrawOrder, Draws the contour info labels on top of the contour lines. Since the labels in these plots have white backgrounds, this is very useful.
mpSatelliteDistF=3.0, This resource specifies the distance in multiples of the earth's radius of the satellite at the view origin. If the value is 1.0 or less, the satellite projection is replaced by its limiting case: an orthographic projection. The default is 1.0.
mpGridLineDashPattern = 2, Changes the lat/lon lines to dash.
In order to zoom in on a region the four resources
mpMinLatF, mpMaxLatF, mpMinLonF, and mpMaxLonF must be set. The thing to remember, is that mpLimitMode must also be set to "LatLon". The csm cylindrical equidistant and polar stereographic plot templates set this resource for you, so it is easy to overlook.
pmTickMarkDisplayMode = "Always", will turn on the automatic lat/lon labels. This is primarily useful for projections other than cylindrical equidistant and polar stereographic which have been given their own style of lat/lon labels by the csm plot templates.
mpGridAndLimbOn = True, turns on the lat/lon grid which was turned off by the plot template.
mpGridMaskMode = "MaskLand", will mask the grid over land so that it is only visible over water.
