SCRIPT - Jetstream - 250, 500 & 850 levels

Post by Budgie »

I thought I would post this script that I use for (what I think are) the three main layers for the jetstream or upper air.
I found the main script on here, so it's nothing new and I can't claim credit for creating it but I hope it's useful to someone to have all three layers on one script.
I've left the coding for the map I use, my overlay and where I save the finished map.
You can see the finished maps here: http://www.hebwx.co.uk/wxjetstream.php
I also made a legend which you are free to copy and use:

Comments welcomed,

Martin.

I think plain_ne_atlantic.dmf is the basemap (you need to substitute your own), but I don't know how to create overlay.png. I'm in learning mode at the moment.

The overlay.png just has my website details on it, a logo and the web address. So you don't really need that unless you want to include the same thing for your own website.
They are easy to create in something like Photoshop, Gimp or Paint.NET; Just create a blank, transparent image that's the same size as the finished maps will be and then add the text that you want (I put a background on my text so I can use it on any map) and then save it as either a GIF or PNG image. You need these formats for the map to show through.

Tarma is correct, the plain_ne_atlantic.dmf is the basemap that I use. You can adjust the plain maps in DA and then save the background using any name you want.

I think they may well be yours Greg, hence the denial of credit. :mrgreen:
Thanks for the original script and I'm glad you like the legend.

What code?? The script is ready-to-run once you add / deleted any customization.

Hi Jean-Robert,

This script works with the DA software to produce the maps, it's not like a PHP script for your website.

If you've got Digital Atmosphere software then look at the left menu and you should see "Scripting", click on that and then click on "Create" to open a file. Paste the script into the text window, altering the save location in the script and the map & overlay names, then save it with a name of your choice.
Then you can run the script to produce the maps.

Martin.
