I am trying to use the IDV classes to build navigated displays. I learnt the whole 'display side coordinate system' technique
from MapProjectionDisplay.java in the visad/examples. In particular, how a call to MapProjection.setDefaultMapArea with a xy
rectangle would result in the visad 'box' showing the xy area.
When moving to the higher level idv classes, I thought the corresponding call was in
ucar.unidata.view.geoloc.MapProjectionDisplay.setMapArea ( ProjectionRect). This does not seem to do what I want. I did peek
at the source code and noted that the comments for that method imply that the rectangle is in fact a lat/lon rectangle, not a
Can anyone shed any light on the setMapArea (and setMapRegion) methods, and how
to use them correctly?
