Re: 2-D contour at arbitrary level


After you display the contours for your 2D contour plot, click on the
"Displays" tab in the IDV Dashboard and then select the Display
Control (along the left side) for your contour field.  In this display
control  there is a slider labelled "Vertical Position" the purpose of
which is just what you described -- so you can move a 2D field up and
down in the display.

 I might have missed this since I am pretty new to IDV. Is it possible to
plot a 2-D XY contour field at an arbitrary level? For example, in Vis5D one
can drag the contour plot up and down in the vertical to different heights
so multiple fields can be seen easily. Is this capability in IDV?
