to visualize a little bit my purpose, I found out one plot, which shows
exactly what I'm trying to do. It is at page 23 of the following Leeds
Does someone know, how to get this kind of plot with ncl, so colored
markers with a colorbar?

Thanks a lot!

sorry, I'm a total NCL newbie and I hope my question is not too stupid,
but even after six hours of searching the NCL website, mailing list and
Google, I couldn't find a good solution for my problem... I actually use
the sample station data "pw.dat" from the NCL homepage with the ASCII
format "ID LAT LON PW", which I want to plot on a world map. The example
plot works quite well. But now my problem: I want to colorize these
markers with a colormap and not with bins like it is shown in
"station_2.ncl" on .
Besides this, I try to get a colorbar at the bottom, which shows me the
values of the different colors. All my plots show only one-colored
markers, if I don't use the bin scheme from the NCL example. So, my
question would be, is there any possibility to use a automatic color map
and not define each bin manually ? I hope you understand, what I try to
do?!? ;-)
I attached my actual code to this mail.

Thank you all very much!
