Post subject:  Wind Scripts for Atlantic

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 simon,

Can you explain the floowing commands :oops:

minimize
timeron

sorry a complete novice here - but VERY keane to learn

I notice that you terminate your scripts with remove and erase - is this good prectice - and what actually do the commands do??

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
