Hi James,

Yes, you should be able to do this with a series of XY plots. First,
make sure you load the gsn_code script at the beginning of your script:

load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/gsn_code.ncl"

Create an array to hold each plot object:

    plotid = new(4,graphic)

In the xyPlotClass "create" block, make sure the variable on the
left-hand side is indexed appropriately:

   plotid(i) = create "xyPlot" xyPlotClass xworkid
       "xyCoordData": dataid
   end create

After you create all your plotids, you can then call gsn_panel with
something like:

   pnlres = True
   pnlres@... = ...
