Hi Bold,

This example uses the default colormap (not a very good one for
What would cause these differences, then, is if you are changing your
color map.

The picture you're getting is definitely from using a different color

If your .hluresfile has a setting for "wkColorMap", then this is what's
causing your color map to look different. Even though this file is in
home directory, it gets loaded no matter where you run NCL from.
This is the point of the .hluresfile.

To get the color map like the one in the example, you would either
need to remove or comment out the "wkColorMap" setting in
your .hluresfile, or else change the color map in example 2 with:

   xwks = gsn_open_wks("x11","gsun02n") ; Open an X11 workstation.
