In the future it would help if you could also include the script you're using. I don't know what subset of the array you are plotting, or what resources you've already set.

Your data doesn't contain coordinate arrays, but it contains arrays on the file that look like they are coordinates for your data, so I used these to create coordinate arrays.

I then used gsn_csm_contour instead of gsn_contour, so that the coordinate arrays are automatically used for the X and Y axis. I did make the X axis linear, since your X values were pretty irregularly spaced.

See attached. If this is not what you want, email ncl-talk again.
