Following on from Ian`s thread about sst`s, I thought I`d put something together using colourfill scripting. Came out pretty good....

Wonder how it will look if Superior freezes over this winter lol I know the chances of that happening aren't very high.

I don`t know, but I have feeling I might be growing banana trees in Atlantic Canada this winter!!! Gotta love climate change :shock: I can just hear the cries of despair from local ski operators, for a third year running!

Ps. Pat, you had problem generating mercator maps in Fusion? I keep getting I/O errors.

I don't think I've generated a mercator in Fusion except for once. Chris mentioned mercators saved in DA WS weren't importing/displaying without an error in Fusion quite some time ago. I'm pretty sure I posted a way to get around that problem... not unless something changed between now and then?

Pat

Nice looking SST BTW :)

Edit: just did a mercator using the US preset and no error popped up? Odd..

I just tried a `north atlantic` preset, 640x480 mercator and it threw out an I/O error halfway through drawing.

Mmmm, no big deal. I was just bored and playing around (with fusion of course!!).

Very nice Bob. Do you have the script for this?
I could use this for my tropical page.

Sorry about that, yes here you go....

Remember for the imported map, you`ll need to use photoshop or something and make the sea background transparent.

If you`re using a custom logo via the preferences option, you`ll need to switch the import line before the data plots else your imported map will overlay the logo. Hopefully Tim can improve on the logo/annotations settings.

Of course with the imported overlay you can add whatever you like, logos, colour gradient legends etc using photoshop.

Hi Bob:

I need you to do me two favors, if you can. First I was wondering if you could design me a custom logo for my charts. Second, since I don't have photoshop, could you create a couple basemaps with the sea area transparent for me? You can then contact me offlist for more details and such.

Thanks,
Randy
