Hi All,

Okay, here's another one (come on, let's have some scripts placed in here).

This script plots winds in grid format and in wind barb format for the Atlantic area. It's good for 6 hourly synops.

You wil need to make a map called crossatlantic.dmf

Cheers,
Simon

Hi Stu,

These were habits picked up in DA.

I find that the minimize works well becuase if you are working on other things you don't get interuppted witth DAWS building files.

I then always stick the timeron command in to make sure that the timer remains on.

Cheers,
Simon
