If you have data with a 1 degree resolution, then there can only possibly be a single data point in a 0.5 x 0.5 degree domain. One cannot make a contour plot with a single data point.

You could interpolate your data onto a higher resolution domain (say, 0.1 degrees) and as long as there are reasonable zonal and meridional gradients in your domain that should work from an NCL point of view (i.e. you will get a contour plot). From a data analysis perspective, however, I would advise against that approach.

Subject: contour plot for small area (0.5 x0.5 degree)

Hi all ncl users;

I want to make a contour plot for small area (0.5x0.5 degree). What plot function can be used ? I try to use gsn_csm_contour_map_ce, it does not work because the longitude/latitude interval of my data are less than 1 degree.

Thanks for help
